I got the top from A-Re-NEWed-Purpose 

I made the skirt to coordinate with it.  The fabric is neoprene from Joann's.  I am going to put a bodice on it and make a dress.  I added pockets but I don't really like them.  They may come out.  I really want a floral pencil skirt to go with the top.  The top is a peplum.  I put my animal print pencil skirt on with it and i did not really like it I was not happy until I matched the top with something floral.  I don't know why.  To make the skirt I used my tried and true scuba skirt template.  I used 10 (40") panels.  I usually do 9 (36") but I wanted it even so that I could 5 panels each side with pockets. So the skirt is a little big.

The children and i went to a food truck that sold mexican sweet treats i had a mangonada we also got a peach and a strawberry one. A co worker gave me a big bag of frozen mangoes so mangonada it is. I watch several you tube videos and instead of water i used tequila. Came out great.

Tried and true

I made this dress the same way i made the last dress. I did not add the v in the back. I forgot about that. I used m6886 and the scuba mini am skirt template. I just added sleeves to this one. I still need to hem. I am thinking of pairing it with a camel belt and shoes.

Print mixing

You know i love to mix print. I made this skirt and so glad. Demi Fuller has an online thrift shop and i bought two striped peplum tops from her. Why did i do that so i can print mix if course. Girl Charlie has floral ponte knit in their shop now 7.50 a yard. The pink black and grey would go great with the black and white striped peplum i just bought.
