The penultimate outfit in my mini-series of dressy outfit ideas features my shimmer pleat palazzos and a fitted top that actually looks a little different to when I first showed it to you on my blog, more on that later though…
When I was thinking of outfits to put together I knew I wanted to do something that included my flowing, shimmer palazzos but I kind of surprised myself when I came up with this pairing. I think it’s because my top is made from quilting cotton and is quite different in vibe to the pearlised glam look of the pants, yet I think it works well 🙂 And the fact that my clutch bag perfectly matches the background colour of the spotty fabric is a big bonus. I must admit I fee pretty fab in this 🙂
The palazzo pants that I made specifically for the Dressmakers Ball were made using OOP Vogue 8866 in a micro pleat jersey fabric that has a foiled shimmer coating. I bought it from White Lodge Fabric and it wasn’t the easiest of fabrics to sew. If you want to read about the process take a look at the original post here
My short fitted top was made quite some time ago and featured on my blog here. Originally there were little shoulder extensions to create a kind of structured cap sleeve effect but I realised that I never felt quite right when I wore it and decided that I might like it better without them…I was right. So I unpicked them off and added a simple white cotton binding turned to the inside. I love the sleeker silhouette now.
This outfit would work well for a dressy evening do, but don’t you think it would also be great for a daytime summer wedding? I really like the combination.
So I just have the finale outfit to show you…it’s a good one! Stay tuned.I’ll be publishing on Sunday, Dec 23rd. See you then!
