DIY mellow yellow Easter ensemble

Although I am usually a sheath dress and a pencil skirt kind of a woman, but for some reason when I saw the BurdaStyle 02/2014 off-the-shoulder top #104 and the pleated yoked skirt #105 I knew I wanted a version of it. I didn’t want to use any heavy fabric as there is no use for it in our climate , so when I saw this mellow yellow linen/cotton blend fabric at Michael Levine I thought it would be perfect. At first I wanted to combine the pieces into a dress, then I thought the skirt is too cute to limit the use of it. So, I made a crop top so I can wear it with other things (I can see it with a high-waisted skinny pant)… It was a big hit at my parents’ Easter party & I felt kind of girly in it :))

Note: Because I made it a crop top I had to put the side zipper upside down so I can put it on.

Clutch: Guess


About Mokara

Hi, Thanks for stopping by. I grew up watching my mom sew, I always enjoyed what she made, until.... I turned 17 & I wanted my skirts a little shorter or the dress tighter & she’d argue with me :) & guess who won? Well, she was making it for me so she had the control & I had to do something about it. I learned pattern making & sewing. I loved it so much that I went ahead and got a degree in Fashion Design, I became a wardrobe and image consultant and basically I'm addicted to clothes :)) I have been told I am a perpetual student, and I love to share my knowledge. I enjoy recreating high fashion garments that otherwise I cannot afford and love to do the same for my clients. Enjoy my posts and be sure to drop a line xoxo
