OWOP: Day 2 with Crochet Trim Ginger

Thank you for all the lovely comments on Denim Ginger! I will definitely keep blue and red combos in mind for future makes.

I made this Ginger last week, using leftover crochet trim from my first Jasmine blouse. I loved the way it peeked out under my jacket.

I kept the skirt simple, using some remnant black cotton twill. I didn’t have a black skirt in my closet until I made this one. Glad I made it because a black skirt will prove useful. It’s easy to dress up or down and matches everything easily.

The best thing about black bottoms is making them pop with a bit of color. I may be in the running for Cardigan Queen; I can’t get enough of them.

The waistband camouflages against my black tank/vest top but the curves still show a bit. Subtle and sweet. I’m really looking forward to styling this skirt with solid and patterned tops*.

I apologize for another short entry. My brain is mush from the fitting workshop. Who knew two days of pinning, observing and toile-making could be so exhausting?

*must make more tops!

    • I don’t have the Sewaholic pattern but I’ve been thinking about adding it to my collection. It’s such a flattering top. I haven’t seen a version online that I haven’t liked.

  1. Nice! I love it with the green, but I bet the skirt looks fantastic with the mustard jasmine as well, with the lace tying it all together! I just cut out Ginger skirt #5 – it’s one of the best patterns out there, isn’t it?
