Skirt Challenge Wrap Up...The End

This is the wrap up of the Skirt Challenge. It was a really fun experience, there were a few days it was cold and I didn't want to wear a skirt or dress, but add some leggings or knee high socks and I was fine.

Pink & Gold Pineapple party Magazine shoot

I was able to help with a Everyday Party Magazine photo shoot, it was a pink, gold and black pineapple spa theme. I designed and made some pj bottoms, and the really swishy, gold lam'e bubble skirt. So much fun!  The shoot was planned and styled by Christina Goff with 4kidscakes and all the photography was taken by Stephanie Vogel of Stephanie Vogel Photography.

The whole magazine can be found here: )  featured on pages 21-29.  Digital copies can be purchased for $5.99 or hard copies for $26.00 (includes free digital copy). 

Taylor Dress

With warm weather here I live in soft, breathable fabrics! I found this fabric at of all places Walmart, in the clearance sections of their fabric! I know crazy right?! I bought the whole bolt. 
While I was picking out patterns, I couldn't decide and ended up just modifying a few to make this dress. I knew I wanted short sleeves, a v-neck and slightly longer than knee length. 

The print is pretty busy so I left the style pretty basic, so I put the zipper on the outside leaving it exposed. I love how it looks. 

I added a waist band, I wanted the bust darts and skirt darts to fit just right and since I have a long torso the wider waist band works great!
