#BLOGLIKECRAZY DAY 27: ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES....

...in the midst of trying to keep up with my 30 day blog challenge, there is some sewing going on here at Casa Lewis.  I guess I'd call this a bit of stash busting - I've made two knit pencil skirts from remnants of other projects. You do know that a #2 pencil skirt is just my style - and I love wearing them with booties or boots during the fall/winter season.



#2 pencil skirts, essential pencil skirts call then whatever you like, but a good knit pencil skirt fits my style every day of the week. I got to thinking about all the possible outfits that I could compose from these two simple skirts.  I love mixing and matching outfits, as well as adding vibrant pops of color.  I pulled a few jackets and sweaters out of the closet to see what would work with my skirts and sort of pre-plan a few outfits for the upcoming weeks.  This is what I came up with thus far:


These sweaters and jackets will work equally as well with the stripped skirt  -  so there are endless possibilities from working with just a few pieces.

  2. Thank you so much Eileen! That made me feel really good. Daily blogging has been my part time J.O.B. for the last 27 days, but I am almost at the finish line. I really try hard to finish anything I set out to do though. It's really nice to know that you've enjoyed reading them!

  9. These are wonderful outfits Faye. And the wardrobe building basics are something I have really been working to improve. You already know about the planned sewing I am working on with my friend Roz...from my sewing Fashionistas IRL group.
