This is my 'Kinda like Katherine' skirt I tried to make it like a skirt that Katherine made and make it a sailor pant inspired skirt. (Katherine is one of my sewing friends who made an adorable skirt that I just grew to love more and more as I got to see here work on it in the lab) I did the pattern work and cut it out before I realized that it was not quite what I wanted it to be. So i kinda fanangled it into what I wanted... well more so what I wanted. I added buttons, a wide belt and the white eyelet around the bottom to break it up and make me look less lengthy. It also hits me at a not so great spot on my waist. So this might be my least favorite skirt. But I think I like it more once I added the eyelet and the belt. Plus I am loving it with the red shoes, so it will be better than Im thinking... I hope!
This is one of my most favorite pencil skirts ever. my best friend Lynsi gave it to me and at first I didnt think I would wear this color. I now believe that every girl needs a nude/tan colored skirt, I wear it all the time! but it was a little bit too short. So I went to to the fabric store and I found some lace and a fabric that is close enough to match the skirt. I really like this one. I think its number two.
And this is my dress that I made, the neck edge is not really what I wanted but it will work. Plus I just love this dress. I just pray that belt doesnt brake, other wise I will have to find some thick cute ribbon or something.
Here is my advice for how to dress up an outfit. This is the most basic basic outfit. Skirt, matching shoes and a v-neck tee shirt. Take it and dress it up! Add a fun scarf or a cardigan or a fun pair of shoes, a necklace. Get creative! It can be fun to accessorize, see what you can find. It doesnt have to match something exactly, have an accent color, or a different shade. There are lots of options.
Anyhow, I hope this gives you some ideas for outfits / skirts / dresses and what not that you other future sister missionaries can take and wear. I think a cute missionary is a happy missionary :) But thats just because I like clothes, a lot more than I realized. But is your ready then Sisters get out there work hard!
I have been set apart and will be leaving for the MTC on Tuesday! So I am signing off! My mom and sister are now in charge of updating my blog with my letters, so if they arent updating then tell me or get onto them!
Thank you all for your support and love and prayers. I am just so excited to get out there and start working! Its finally my time to get to serve the Lord and so I am going to run as long as I can and help this work progress while I am called to be a part of it.
