This was my inspiration board.
Since there is so much beautiful lush greenery around, the bulbs that poke through the ground make such a statement. They are easily seen. I wanted the same POP for my outfit. I used a very soft texture knit for the dress, with the Lady Skater Pattern by Kitschy Coo. It is the first time I have ever used this pattern. I had to grade it (because I am different sizes in different places), and am loving the results of a very fitted, yet comfortable dress.
The pants are self-drafted. I rarely wear anything other than super comfortable flowy yoga-type pants. I have no idea why it has taken me this long to make my own! I made them from a very very soft ponte knit. Oh goodness, this fabric is like buttah. These pants have the swish of a skirt with all the benefits of being pants.
I free-hand painted (with acrylic paints, heat set in the dryer) some designs onto the dress to add visual interest.
I painted a feather to look like it is sticking into the dress. It brings some style without the bulk of an actual feather.
Here is a close-up of the design I painted on the scarf.
Scarves are essential most times of year here, but especially in the Spring. We normally wear less, but those chilly breezes can still appear.
Spring is a time to be in clothing that allow you to move!
