I love how this outfit turned out. I love that I can wear it casual and dressy depending on my mood. I also love how comfortable the fabric is. It’s a spandex knit from Fabricmart.com. I’ve had the pattern for the top in my stash for some time now, and I see it is Out of Print as well. I wanted to make it last year, but opted because the pattern reminds me of winter wear and I don’t need much winter wear here in Florida. I was inspired by MimiG’s version of this outfit and as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to pair it with this fabric.
The Leggings were self drafted. There are many Youtube videos and Tutorials on the web on making a legging block. I do not remember who’s tutorial I used because its been such a very long time that I made the pattern. I use it often.
I styled it with a dressy suede booties and a pair of open toe sandal booties to show how different shoes can give an out such a different look.
