Pineapples anyone?

Earlier this year at Cabramatta, Jodie, Mel, Steffi, Susan and I caught up for lunch and a bit of fabric shopping. Susan and I spied this pineapple print linen/cotton blend for a steal, so we both bought some.
I've used Vogue 8815 peplum top with a self-drafted lined skirt with side seam pockets.

These simple pieces work in my work wardrobe and I can pair each piece with dark colours. The ease in the top is enough so the fabric isn't too scratchy.
No print matching or print placement 'smarts' were used. I just had fun making these two pieces of fruit salad. Bananas!!

love it! The print is so big you can't try and match it or you'd need metres and metres of fabric. We totally need a pineapple themed meet up!

Love the pineapple print!

Cute!

Love the fabric and I love what you've made out of it. I kinda feel like you need a headpiece made from plastic fruit to top it off though.

Carol said...

Oh I like these. The fabric is really fun. You look great.

Jenny said...

Gold! I hope you wear them together... such a fun outfit!

Vanessa said...

Matching separates are such a great idea. Very tropical :)
Should be lovely and cool in summer. I've never really worked with linen. Will the scratchiness fade with wear?

I had to stop somewhere:)

Velosewer said...

Thanks Jenny. Sewing can't really be serious.

Velosewer said...

I hope the scratchiness will fade too. Thanks Vanessa.

I have this pattern. It looks lovely as a two piece and reminds me of a dress I had a long time ago.

Stunning outfit! Love the print and linen no less. :)
