A knit skirt plus a fancy knit top

Ginny and I found a stray small piece of swimsuit fabric among the beautiful knits at Ragtime Fabrics the other day.  I made it into a faux wrap skirt by building a wide yoke/waistband to the top of it.  The wild geometric print knit laps over itself in front, but the skirt is a pull-on piece by virtue of the stretchy wide band at the top.  I haven't yet listed this skirt in my etsy shop, but I will soon!

The whole skirt is quite stretchy.  Yes, I can make one for you out of any knit fabric you may choose!

 And now we move onto the Fancy Knit Top.  What a lovely design!  My dear friend in Boise sent me a picture of a similar top and I said SURE I can make one like it!  She chose one of the wonderful knits I have here in my studio (rayon/lycra, very light and soft) and I crafted it to her specifications.

This is part of the gracious email I received from her after she opened the package of her Fancy Knit Top:  "my goodness i can't tell you how much i just love my new top! simply stunning and love the fabric color and fit ... almost like i was there and we had a personal fitting. ... you might get me spoiled into thinking that i need ALL of my clothes custom made! {i wish} thanks again ... i will treasure it and think of you when i wear it."

 .....  I guess she likes it!  I know. I love it too!  If you love it and you'd like one of your own, visit my etsy shop and check it out.....   click here.
