Hi Heather, I like this color combo and the perfect shoe, too. Cute outfit.

They look great, and I love the shoes. I would fall over and stumble around if I wore anything that high :)

Love it.. and the skirt and shoes are so cute with it.. Happy sewing.

Heather said...

I adore these shoes! Years of practice makes it OK. You've gotta do something when you're as short as I am! I didn't realize what a good match they were until the skirt was finished. ;-)

Mary said...

This is such a great outfit, and really plays to the shoes. You have wonderful legs---wear skirts all the time. :-)

Love the skirt color!

Mary is right, your legs are fantastic - and look great with those shoes and skirt. I think you are an inverted triangle really lovely compact shape and killer legs. The skirt looks fantastic on you, and the bright colours really go with your personality. You are slim through the legs so no wonder pants patterns are big and baggy on you.

Thanks for all the compliments! I am blushing. Yes, I would go with inverted triangle, but in relation to the bust, my shoulders are not so big. So, I also get shirts that go around the bust and then the neckline back and front end up gaping, or the armholes are way too big!!! So, part of the issue is that I should simply lose some weight. LOL. Anyhow, I do love skirts, and if the sun ever shines again in Austria, I will be the first to wear one!

Or use a smaller size for the neck/arm - lots of patterns are just too big around the arm and neck - I sometimes use a smaller size for shoulders, neck, arms and move to a larger size for bust, smaller size for back. You sort of learn after a while what works for you.
