My Copy Cat Outfit
It has been one of those days when everything (and I mean everything) goes just a smidgen off. I wanted to show the skirt and top that I had purchased at FIDM a couple of weeks ago. But I couldn't rotate the photo for the top, so please just imagine the adult version. It was a tube top with allowances for the breast.
The Scholarship store had a rack outside and on the rack were items that were imperfect at two (2) for a dollar. Being a person that has a very hard time passing up a bargin I stopped. There were about 15 skirts that looked just like the one above but much, much longer and the top was (I think) a cutoff dress. The bottom of the green tube top was just whacked off with big scissors. The top of the skirt was gathered with elastic. Just like the tube top. I really like the color combination, so I purchased it with the intention of making my granddaughter Lucy a Anthropologie look alike. I thought that would only be an afternoon of work.
The top had to be completer dis-assembled. I could not cut the fabric because I needed all the pieces to reassemble in the mode that provided her with capped sleeves. I always enjoy climbing mountains and it took about three days to finish.
I hope that she will enjoy all the colors.
Oh, by the way I had help from Chester. I couldn't persuade him to go away!
