Everyday skirt + Metro tee.

I am on a roll!  It's selfish sewing week, so I decided I will do just that, sew for me!  It has been fun and I may be getting a little obsessed (I really should be making the kids pants and jackets).  

So, ignore the random light on my boob, I still am not great at using my remote and this was the only decent shot of somewhere close to twenty.  Ugh.

The top is the Liesl and Co Metro tee in some fuschia polka dot from Girl Charlee that I had left over from making a maternity tee (that was never blogged).  The material didn't hold up great, unfortunately, but I was wearing it 2-3 times a week (because it fit) so I am hoping if it gets washed less it will last longer.  The pattern is great, so great.  But I think all O+S and L+C patterns are the bomb diggity.  I made an XL and didn't change a darn thing.

The skirt is the Liesl and Co Everyday skirt in a Robert Kaufman Essex yarn dyed linen.  I have made this one twice before but didn't get a lot of wear out of them because two weeks or so after they were made I found out I was pregnant with Sam!  I love the skirts and they are so comfy so I "needed" another.  I made a Large with again no mods.

I have another Everyday Skirt cut, a Traveler view B and a Weekend Getaway so expect some more awkward photos of me to show up here.


  1. Oooh, I need another Everday Skirt too!! This looks great and so wearable!

    1. You do! ;) I thought as I was cutting out two at a time, 'Do I really need two more?', obviously the answer was heck yes! haha.

  2. This is a great everyday outfit that's not at all shabby! I'm about to make my first Traveller too. look forward to seeing yours!

  3. I am loving all your selfish sewing, Brittney! This outfit looks great on you - very flattering. Looking forward to seeing the rest of your list (beware: selfish sewing becomes addictive pretty quickly)

  4. Such a tidy and well put together outfit.
