When I shop for fabric during the Spring and Summer, I’m always drawn to the colorful prints. I have a hard time giving in to their allure though, because when I wear them, I feel too sweet.
But when I saw the Cotton and Steel
prints this season at Fabric Depot
, I had to indulge. To balance out the look, I decided to mix things up a bit, pairing the printed shirt with an edgier skirt with leather detailing and a zipper. Wearing a bit of leather and metal keeps me from feeling too…Girly. Obviously, I have issues!
The fabric I picked is a cotton lawn print, designed by Rashida Coleman Hale, her Mochifloral Teal.
The colors are very ‘me’ so I nabbed a couple of yards for Simplicity 1422,
a shirt with tabbed roll-up sleeves.
