Wear to Where?, sewing, Patterns for PiratesKaty McKinleyComment

It's wedding season, you guys!  And that means you're going to be spending some (or a good amount of) time in front of your closets, trying to figure out what to wear.  We've got you covered with this one!

My look was something I debated over for a while...and didn't actually make it until the night before a wedding that we hosted in our home.  I wanted something casual-ish, comfortable (because we were also photographing the wedding) and was dying to add lace.

At first I had considered a dress, but then decided to make a top and skirt, so I can mix/match as I please the rest of the spring and summer.  

My ultimate decision was a circle skirt and a lace overlay top.  Instead of doing any prints, I decided upon a teal rayon blend for the skirt, and a basic off-white lace with a matching cami underneath.

I am fully in the party that doesn't believe in letting your bra straps show.  I totally broke my own rules with this, and hard.  Whoops. 

My top is a Patterns for Pirates Sweet Tee with zero hemming.  Like, none.  Fastest shirt in the west.  Lace is an epic pain to hem and I liked the raw edges of it all.  I used a curved hem and was nervous about it being longer than my cami underneath but ended up loving the look as a whole.

My skirt is the circle skirt from the Patterns for Pirates Sweetheart Dress.  During the sew-a-long we had with the Sweetheart Dress, we gave some waistband measurements so you could hack your pattern into a skirt as well.  (You can find those measurements HERE.)

I looooove me a good circle skirt!  They're so twirly and feminine!

I totally meant to iron out the wrinkles in my skirt before photographing this.  But......sorry!
