ANOTER SKIRT, A SUN TOP AND SOME FUCK UPS



 I made myself another "post-pregnancy" skirt!

And a nursing sun top, with the same system as the sailorette dress,  to go along.

Although, I actually fucked up quite a bit - I was in a hurry (you know, had to get it done before some little person next to me decided to wake up and call on titty time) and just cut the pieces without any real measuring. So of course the top got real tight and ended up showin snippets of the bra.
So I guess I just have to redo it.

Also, did some strange mis-calculations with the skirt which did not really become that much of a post-pregnancy skirt, no elastic waist, as it got too small to fit over my arse hip. And instead of putting a zipper in I did a lot of weird stuff and additions to be able to wear it.


But oh well, that's the way it is sometimes. You can't always win now can you.
But at least my skirt has pockets, you know, making things a little better.

Furthermore, it suddenly got real cold today so I might not need a sun top anymore.

Not sure weather that should be counted as positive or negative thinking?

(If interested, my belt is Vivien of Holloway, bangle vintage, the shoes very very old and my hair is, well yes thank you, fabulous - but only half of it my own.)

You don't have to re-do the top. Just fatten up the areas where your brassiere shows with a fat pleated ribbon or such. Like this:

Something not fussy to keep with the cleans lines of the design.

Ah you're so clever. I am so incredibly impatient with things like this that I almost always do a half arse job

Fuck ups or not - you look fab in your outfit. Even if it's not sunny outside the colour of the tops is a little ray of sun :)

Åh jag vet inte hur många gångar jag har gjort fel när jag ska sy eller designa något åt nån. Och oftast beror det på att man var stressad eller så. Nu har jag mer erfarenhet så att jag vet vart man kan ta genvägar och inte, men det är alltid svårt med nya projekt.

Men vilket fint mönster på kjolen. ser lite Marimekko aktigt ut.

I agree with -K! You don't have to redo the top! Add some lace or patterned fabric, just enough to cover up the showin snippets. When you don't need a nursing bra (those ususlly cover up a lot!), just remove the extra fabric.
