Simplicity 1421 trimmed blazer and Butterick B6060 skirt. This is like the 7th blazer that I have made, everyone loves this blazer, it’s either that or they love the fabrics that I chose for it. The skirt was pretty simple and has maxim impact, you can’t beat that! Put these two together with a fun print and this is what you get.

    Love the outfit and your use of the African prints. You inspire me and I’ve been looking at African print fabrics on line but I have not pulled the trigger yet :-)

      Pull that trigger, you’d be surprised at the outcome! My problem is I buy to many African prints, I have a store in my sewing room.

      They were made for each-other, in my head anyway! Thanks Sue.
