The Skirt

About two weeks ago, I finished my skirt. I learned a lot along the way about things that I have basically forgotten at this point, but I completed it. I made some gospel analogies along the way - seamripping = repentance (I did a lot of this), my inability to sew a straight line = apostasy (this created the need for seamripping), learning to read a pattern = understanding the scriptures (the pattern was like a foreign language) etc.

My goal was to wear the skirt in public. So the first Sunday after I finished, I put together this outfit. I haven't decided whether I looked cute or just a little frumpy, but here I am.

I think you look cute! Something I have learned from many an episode of "What Not to Wear" is that if you have something loose/flowy on the bottom, then wear something more fitted on the top and if you're wearing something more tight/fitted on the bottom, then something more flowy on the top goes. It looks like that's what you did, so good job! :) That's about all the fashion knowledge I have on fashion...and as you may have noticed, I don't know how to dress myself either. :)

My verdict is: CUTE.

Love it! And love the gospel analogies. (It was great to see you again this past weekend, even if only for a short visit).
