I seem to agree with all the other comments, the outfit goes so well together and you look gorgeous in it!

(ah i love photoshoots with photographer friends... Tongue well... me and my two best mates are all interested in photography and end up doing our own shoots, hardly anything professional Tongue) But the photographs look great also, and make the outfit look perfectly put together

It is a little tricky to see the front of the vest, I was wondering if it was just plain black or does it have any details or decoration that hasnt shown up in the photo

Sorry if that sounds silly or something Tongue

p.s. also I love your red hair! (my hair was that colour at one point... dyed though, now just a little bit brighter Tongue)

Xxxxx

Yeah...I tried to pick out something that would show off the whole outfit, but I do have lots of close ups of the top and vest. The vest is pretty plain, just black knit fabric cut in a V and hemmed (not too professionally, I might add *l*). The white tank top underneath is just something I picked up from Target with an odd screenprint (I think it's supposed to be Marie Antoinette on one side and a skeleton on the other).

Here is a better picture of the top:

That outfit is wonderful and looks great. I really like the top.

Also...you kind of remind me of a young Jennifer Garner. Get that much? (I'm generally compared to Winona Ryder or Trinity from Matrix although I look like neither Huh)

I love the skirt and the top. The top has inspired me to try some things I can layer!
I think the trim really adds something to the skirt, makes it more interesting and different, I love it!

Also, I am new to making my own clothes without a bought pattern, and I was wondering (probably stupid question), how did you make sure the top fitted, did you take measurements and make an outline practice thing out of tracing paper??

The easiest thing to do is just a find the best fitting tank top you have and lay it on top of your fabric, and then trace around it making sure to leave an extra 1/2 or so seam allowance. Also remember to account for stretch...if it's a really stretchy top you'll want to leave an extra 1-2 inches. If you're not sure it's always better to leave too much seam allowance than not enough because you can always just go back over the seam and make it smaller, but you can't make it bigger! Good luck Smiley
