Last Spring palette outfit finished. Nautical top and circle skirt and Me made March day 1 and 2

Finally the last outfit I made as part of the Colette Spring palette challenge and outfit one of Me Made March. The top is a lovely soft jersey. I drafted the pattern by tracing just one of my simple jersey tops I have in my wardrobe. Nothing fancy, just front and back piece...fits easily due to the stretch in the fabric. I made my own self fabric bias binding to finish the neckline, armholes and hem (not shown in the pictures). The skirt is just a simple circle skirt I drafted when I made the two (1 and 2) lace dresses. I just drafted a waistband for this one since it's not attached to a bodice and voila a circle skirt. I used the same button on the skirt, trousers and shorts to keep it all tied together.
I hope you like my little Spring palette collection of nautical loveliness. I am sure these pieces will occur quite frequently during Me Made March. Who else has joined Zoe's Me Made March? Let me know so I can check out your daily outfits.
This leads to another question, would you like to see my MMM outfit posts on a daily or weekly basis or something in between?

And today's outfit: The only thing MM I am wearing is the blouse. Blogged about here.


  1. I love your blouses! The nautical outfit is so classic and your tie neck blouse is darling with the cardigan.

    BTW, if I could choose any hair color it would be yours. Really gorgeous.

  2. I love that blouse too - it is gorgeous!
