I fell in love with this fabric immediately when I saw it online. The color is such a beautiful rosy shade of grape purple, and I had a good feeling that it would pair nicely with so many things in my closet. It made a lovely Christmas outfit this year!
Was there ever a more perfect time for a matchy-matchy lounge set than in the season of social distancing and stay home orders? I would say no. So here I am, serving isolation chic.
In 2019, I had the opportunity to work with sequined fabric for the first time. I was so excited, but also a little terrified to check this cool fabric off of my sewing bucket list! I mean, what does one even DO with all of those itty bitty sequins!? I was thrilled with the opportunity, though, and ended up creating a super fun New Year’s Eve dress… and decided that working with sequins wasn’t that scary after all! So of course, I did it again.
This top was meant to be ready for Holiday Season 2019, something that I could dress up and dress town in order to be outfit appropriate for any and all style of parties and get togethers! I envisioned it with skinny jeans and boots, with my red babycord mini skirt, and front tucked into a long midi skirt. It was a little hard to shine in this top at all those holiday parties, though, since I didn’t actually finish it until the end of December last year! Don’t worry, though, I’ll be just in time for all my virtual celebrations this year!
