60's Retro Style - Simplicity 2154

But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. I Corinthians 15:20
Thank God for Jesus!  He is risen!


 
Hope all had a Happy Resurrection Sunday 2012

I'm finding myself more and more drawn to retro and vintage fashion. The moment I saw this pattern I knew that I wanted to make it. 

 I found the cardigan fabric, a ribbed knit, on clearance (of course!) at JoAnn Fabrics.  The fabric for the top is a textured silky print from Virginia's stash and the skirt fabric, some type of rayon (challis?) woven that I've had for a thousand years :-) from FashionFabricsClub.  

 It was my intent to have this project done in time for my 50th birthday which I celebrated last year but of course it didn't happen.
   The weather has been so unpredictable lately however I knew that I could get some pics in today for it was a cool and windy 60 something degrees.   

Okay....so I got a little picture happy, what can I say!  I love this project!



 Don't you just love these colors together or is it just me?  I look forward to mixing and matching these pieces with other pieces!   
Have a Great week!  Peace and Blessings!

  7. Happy Easter! You look beautiful! I love the colors! The red shoes really complete the total outfit. This looks good as office wear too. I work in an office and definitely plan to incorporate more color into my work wardrobe.

  10. Oh my goodness, I do love this outfit. I actually have this pattern and I made the cardigan, but never sewed the skirt and blouse. Now that I see the whole ensemble, I MUST finish mine. I adore the yellow and red with the neutral skirt & blouse. You look terrific.
