This was my OOTD on Sunday, and I put it on solely because it was hot and sunny and I wanted to expose as much skin as possible to the delicious, never enough, sun and heat.
The skirt is a really simple re-style: I only shortened it using the European jeans hem method. Formerly, it was one of those horridly long, 1980s maxi skirts. I loved the fabric, though; it’s a poly rayon double knit, and it’s got just enough stretch, just enough softness, just enough movement, and it’s smooth and cool to the touch.
The sleeveless cardi is one of my early makes, back when making a cardigan was the hardest thing in the world. Front shoulder darts are no joke! And this cardi has huge front shoulder darts.
It looks a little different on the model, not the least because my fabric doesn’t really drape. It’s a lightweight, grabby cotton knit, but how could I say no to silver polka dots? The trim is a silvery-white poly sweaterish knit that I also used to make my TNT top in look A (not yet shown on the blog). Were I to make M6084 again, I’d indulge in a bamboo or silk jersey in a solid color. Wayyy classier.
