Batik & Crop Top

It's going to be a good week..I can feel it *waving all of the positive energy right over here *. The weekend was a breath of fresh air that was therapeutically cleansing. On Thursday, I initiated a social media detox to disconnect and clear my head just a teeny weeny bit. While away, yes I felt like I was on a mental stay cation, I came up with a grand idea.

The idea was to design and sew a piece for my wardrobe EVERY single day. The reason is pretty simple..I have entirely too much fabric in my closet that I have not attempted to use. An advantage to making a piece a day will also hone my sewing skills and build my fall wardrobe. I know life may get in the way so please don't hold me to every day but on this day we have first...BATIK HIGH LOW SKIRT.

 I purchased this gorgeous african batik printed fabric almost 3 years ago from Hancock Fabric. I have moved, sewn many pieces, even cut pieces from the fabric to make a turban yet never used it. 

Finally getting around to using it, I made an executive decision to design a high low skirt. I wanted to play with a different cut for a pencil skirt look.

The styling concept for me is always a simple approach. The fabric is an African batik and of course I had to play on the look of an modern African fashionista.
