I wore this look yesterday, for my girls’ day out with a friend: mani/pedi, lunch, and shopping! Best way to spend a Saturday, getting pampered and basking in the company of a good person.
The top is McCall’s M6078, which I’ve made about five times — it’s my TNT! Or maybe it’s my go-to top pattern. I don’t know that I use this pattern to check the fit of other patterns, I use it to whip up really quick tops for myself. I like it because I don’t have to do any grading, and because the armholes fit me perfectly.
The leggings are my personal version of McCall’s M6173, the best leggings pattern evah. Seriously, it’s such a simple, easy to make pattern, and it’s super easy to alter the shape for a perfect fit (if you know how to do that sort of thing). I no longer use the pattern pieces, because I transfered all my alterations to heavy paper. Also, when I did that, I made a left leg and a right leg pattern piece. I don’t always use both legs to cut, but it’s a nice option to have.
The denim shirt is a souvenir I bought at Dressbarn when I went to Philadelphia last year, and it’s become my faaaaavorite shirt! I wish I’d bought two, but c’est la vie. The shoes are brand new from Payless this year, and also come in a blue/brown color scheme. I’m not huge on that color combo, so I only got the black/white pair. I love how they both ground this otherwise very loud, very clashing, very ‘me’, outfit!
