The New Tango
Here's the finished Tango Skirt on Miss Acme, along with the Talbot's jacket that provided the inspiration. Miss Acme has a smaller bustline than I do, so the jacket looks a lot better on me than her. But I'm home alone right now...
Good catch if you think this fabric looks familiar. Sherril made a blouse out of the same fabric, which she's wearing on her PR avatar!
The Tango skirt pattern allows the fabric to be the star, and each one looks different enough that non-sewing friends don't roll their eyes when they see yet another one made up and worn. There will be more, because it's so easy to make, and pretty to wear.
Update 3/16/09: I wore this outfit to work today with a black knit top, also from Talbot's. Everything was comfortable and simple to wear while looking good. I'm sure the skirt will be a workhorse in my wardrobe! Thanks for all your compliments.
