For the last couple of days I have been working on this combo set in blue. I don't particularly like the color blue but, I had some blue fabric and the idea just popped in my head about blue. Since blue is the "business smart" color, I decided that I needed more blue in my life.
I picked a lightweight cotton broadcloth that I had had in my stash for over a year. I could never really find anything that I wanted to use it for and then I had gotten over 10 yards of the stuff which means I still have more left. Right now I'm not going to worry about how much blue fabric I have sitting on the shelf daring me to touch it (driving me crazy) but, I am going to focus on something else for a while.
In the mean time let's talk about Butterick 6025. This is the first part of my combination set and the small
Here's a look at both pieces as a set.
Now for the skirt. I have been watching the headlines and the main thing that I get from the fashion queens of the world is that my closet is behind the times if I don't have a pencil skirt. I really didn't have a pencil skirt. So, I had to change that.

Learning to accentuate my figure has been a daunting task since my last baby. I tend not to wear form fitting clothing because I still have a prominent tummy bulge, Hulk shoulders, and busty "dirty pillows". All of these major features make up me. I can't cut them off so I have to camouflage them through my clothing choices.
I adore pencil skirts and form fitted dresses which is why I took a chance on this skirt. I'm not going to let all of the body image issues stop me from dreaming or wearing. Here's a look at my pencil skirt.
The fun of this skirt is the form fit. I love the pleated walking vent in the back. Even though my skirt is not as tight as some, it does suit my taste. I like walking and I like breathing even better.
Lots of Love,
OOOh, I almost forgot. Tune in tomorrow for a special surprise giveaway. It's going to be a Hoot!!!
