Description

I purchased this denim fabric a while ago just waiting for the perfect idea to pop into my head, and it did with the idea of a “denim skirt suit”. With this suit idea, I knew I didn’t want to make the classic blazer and skirt so I decided to sew our Slit Neck Peplum Top paired with our cleverly seamed Straight Skirt. The denim fabric had a nice amount of stretch in it so I knew the peplum top and skirt would hug my body nicely.

To add some interest to the outfit I added side panels of stretch pleather to the peplum top. Sadly I didn’t have enough of that fabric to incorporate any into my skirt, but I still think that they go together quite nice! The best part is that I have separates (I mean, who doesn’t wear a denim skirt… it goes with everything!) and I wore the peplum top with a pair of leather leggings the other day and it looked great. The sewing on these projects was smooth sailing (for the most part), the most challenging part was to get the front slit in the top to lay flat.

This project was for my most recent Mash Up so you can follow along on my drafting and sewing processes in these posts:

    If “chic young woman climbing the corporate ladder” and “rock’n roll style” had a baby, it would look like this suit. Sexy, powerful, confident. One of your best yet.
