My Plus Size Fashion Style: DIY Pencil Skirt and Chambray Top
Class is great but I have a sewing machine at home that I don't get to use that often so this past weekend, I wanted to make something for me that used some of the skills that I've been learning. What's more perfect and easy than a pencil skirt. I've had this Ponte Knit fabric for a while now but didn't know what to do with it. I just knew that I loved this color for fall. So, I decided to jump right in and make myself a pencil skirt, which was really simple and now I want one in every color...lol
I wore my DIY skirt with a Chambray top and nude flats for work on Monday. The knit fabric I choose is perfect. It moved with me and didn't feel tight or too loose.
I thought paring it with the chambray top was a great fall look, although if you live in Los Angeles, it feels more like summer.
My goal with fashion is to design structured looks for plus size women. Such as great jackets, blazers, evening wear and of course everyday looks. I really want my pieces to reflect to the confident women and be well tailored. I'm a long way from my goal because there are many more classes I need to get all the skills needed but I'm having fun learning.
