My First Sewn Outfit- Vintage Inspired

One of the holiday's fruit of labour; a set of blouse and pleated skirt sewn from scratch.

Lots of time and effort but it payed off to have something unique and tailored to my own body measurements. The blouse design is Hawaiian collared, cuffed and added quite a number of pleats to make it more fitting.

Took the advice from one of my previous post to sew a pleated skirt since it suits the fabric better. So thanks for the great feedback!

The sewing classes is well-organized by using a step by step approach. And this time I can understand and remember it better. Feeling confident to sew some simple stuff on my own now. Plus the environment is really friendly and warm.

Wore it with this pair of shoes from Jakarta: lace-up leather peep-toe wedges which coincidentally matches the belt.
Next up: Jacket with lining!

Will be learning pockets, working with lined/patterned fabric and LININGGG- the mother of sewing accomplishments! OK not really but really something great to learn cos it's the thing that give clothes the extra luxurious feel.

Taking it slow and easy.
