Helloooo! I had a great weekend! Hopefully next week I can tell you a bit more about it with photos. I also started sewing a quick knit dress for a party this Friday. Trena is going to be my fabulous (and similarly dressed) date. I also FINALLY bought a Wii after a year of wanting one. Not for the exercise. I just wanted to stream Netflix into the basement when sewing. I haven’t even bothered opening up the game that came with it, LOL. BTW, the Triangle Fire special in streaming now.
But, that’s not why I’m writing. I finished this Burda Magazine 6/2009 #104 skirt above. It’s a muted pink and cream seersucker. It’s the fourth of my Four Skirts in Four Days (I havent’ posted #3 yet). I’m not wearing it yet because I don’t have a coordinating top. I’m working on that though.
I originally envisioned this as a suit with a matching jacket from the Spring / Summer 2008 Burda Easy Fashion. But, I’m not sure what my button situation would be. Because it’s got two rows of buttons, does that limit my jacket choice?
I also like this jacket from 9/2009 Burda last year that Kristy made me absolutely crazy for. But, I’m not sure it can be worn with a two row button skirt. Especially if the buttons aren’t symetrical / aligned. And, I don’t know that this is a jacket that looks good un-buttoned.
I also wonder if this #113 jacket from the May 2011 Burda is a good compromise. I like that it’s a bit nautical too. Similar buttons, but without having to worry about button alignment when buttoned.
So, Single, Double, or no buttons on a matching jacket? I’m open to thoughts on this one, please.
