Parasol Skirt and Top
I finished this a few weeks ago but never had a chance to photograph till yesterday. The weather has also been rather chilly to prance around in this as yet.
The skirt is Vogue 7540 with a center inverted pleat.
Here is a blog post about the fabric and pattern. The top came from this pattern.
My hubby gets such a kick (not really as he rolls his eyes) as I strike a pose.
Here is a close up of the front of the blouse. The off white fabric has a small swirl pattern to it that can't be seen from the photos. The red buttons came from a stash of buttons I got in this basket of goodies from the thrift shop. Gloves will be blogged about later this week.
