The “Sip of Lemonade” Skirt
I had misgivings about this week’s challenge for one simple reason: the color yellow makes me look like I am suffering from consumption. Well, some shades are worse than others, but you get the idea . . .
This does not keep me from purchasing fabric that is yellow, however. I already used this rayon/linen blend for another skirt in a pink color. I really liked the bow embroidery, so I grabbed a small length of the yellow color as well – I just knew it would come in handy!
I decided to use my limited yardage for a straight skirt. This keeps the color away from my face, but lets me have fun with color combinations that are a bit unfamiliar to me.
This is the second Beignet I have made, and for the moment I think I will put the pattern aside. But I am quite sure it will not be the last time I use it!
And my blouse is from this year’s “Tickled Pink” challenge. I thought it was fitting to pair the two together!
