Now that the Wattle sewalong has wrapped up I’m really thrilled to be able to share some favourites from my wardrobe!
This Wattle midi skirt has got to be my most worn Wattle skirt, and I don’t think that will change any time soon. Krystal made this sample during testing and it was love at first sight. This linen is actually digitally printed, so the underside is white! The texture is what I really love about it, and I think that lends itself really well to bias cuts. I bought it at the Potter & co warehouse sale a while back – that really was an amazing sale, I feel i’m like constantly using the pieces I bought.
The top I’m wearing is a River top sample from testing that I don’t think i’ve shared before? It looks a lot like the Banksia blouse I have from the same fabric, and is a great testament to why you shouldn’t make two tops from the same fabric – I get confused all the time!
After taking these photos I decided that the skirt wasn’t sit as snug around my waist as I like, so I simply moved the buttons further toward the side seam on the waistband to get a closer fit. That’s one of the things I really love about Wattle – there is a little bit of flexibility in a crossover closure. If you need to give or take a bit of room in the waist, you can simply move the buttons a tad. I really like that!
There is a small amount left of the skirt fabric and I’m thinking of making a Eucalpyt tank with so i can have a matching set/faux dress. What do you think should i do it?!
