Now, I was left a blouse without a mate. I decided the blouse would look better with a skirt. So I went back to JoMar hoping I'd find more of the same fabric. Unfortunately, I did. I used Burda 3152, another OOP pattern to make a skirt and I had one more outfit that disappointed me. I think it's too "matchy-matchy". Imagine that coming from me!
If I learned anything at all from this adventure, it was (1) not to be so obsessive about finding mates for old-maid garments and (2) things don't always have to match. I got carried away with my obsession and now I have two outfits I will wear but I don't really love. Maybe, I'll find fabric for a nice solid colored skirt to wear with the blouse. But I'm not going to obsess about looking for it.
