I'm sewing along with KCWC this week, dedicating at least an hour of sewing each day for my children. By children, I mean Drew.
This look was never meant to go 80s. I had this little top in mind with the contrasting shoulders, which I ended up using a neon shoelace trim on the shoulder pieces.
The top demands a pair of leggings. I picked out the bright blue knit and brass metal zippers in the late hours of the night, and when I awoke to it all this morning, it transported me back to my 80s childhood. It didn't help that when my mom saw the pants she mentioned she had owned a pair exactly like them with the zippers and everything. "So that I could zip my pants over my shoes," she said. Of course to zip your pants over your shoes! That's how we rolled.
But despite the 80s vibe, I think it is a totally modern take. I love it.
If I can keep up the sewing this week, my next look will have a touch of neon in it too.
