Golden Rippy RE-mixed!

I was SO excited to get the chance to be part of Golden Rippy's Re-mix the Stitch Tour! Be sure to read to the end to hear about the amazing prizes that Rachel has brought together to celebrate 2 years with Golden Rippy!

I started with the Delilah Top and the Calrose Skirt.  I was a little worried because I didn't realize until after I had the patterns in my inbox that the Delilah top only goes to an xl. Fortunately, it is a relaxed fit so I carried on with my plan to marry these 2 patterns.

Originally, my plan included a strip of fabric (floral, I think) between the top and skirt pieces but I wasn't pleased with the result at all so I took it apart and joined the top and skirt together directly. I took it apart again to shorten the top more (I have lost track of how much I took off of the bottom of that) and did my best to re-contour the skirt so that it fit properly in the high waist, waist and hips.

Then! I went belt shopping! I found some amazing inspiration on-line and had the best intentions to create a master piece but in the end, I found the one I am wearing for a steal while out Christmas shopping.

I am super-excited to have my dress all set and accessorized for next weekend's (that's right, I am ready over a week in advance!!!) Christmas celebration!

 I love taking patterns and finding ways to make them suit me - MY personality and MY body! I hope that you will find some inspiration on this Remix the Stitch Tour as it continues over the next few days!
