However much I love this top, the real reason I put this outfit together was so I could wear my petticoat again! The novelty and fun of swishing around hasn't worn off yet, and I made good on my promise to acquire another petti in black over my recent birthday! I don't think I'll be investing in any other colors soon as I expect ivory and black will be adequate to match nearly any outfit I have, but you never know when Malco Modes might release the Samantha (my preferred petticoat style) in navy blue... I do have plans for more circle skirts like this black sateen one though, the more skirts I make the more often I can wear my petticoats! I already have some lipstick red sateen waiting in my sewing room to become my next skirt :)
In the effort for full disclosure and sharing the real alongside the fabulously vintage, I have actually been feeling a bit stretched this week (hence no post yesterday, oops). I just feel like I have so many creative endeavors I want to be spending time on, and not nearly enough time and energy to actually spend on each! Hopefully this upcoming weekend I can get caught up on a few of my projects (like filming for YouTube...) and feel a bit more productive overall. Do any of you ever get stuck in a summer slow down slump?
