What a great idea for a challenge, but I'll have you know I was a tad worried on how I could try and make this Simplicity pattern look half decent, mind you I had to alter the pattern to make it wearable, is that cheating? who in their right mind would slip into this horrendous outfit? but then again it was 1996! Did Winona wear something like this in Reality Bites? I do love that movie, any who here is my take on this pattern. Excuse the ugly brick wall I figured with the fabric being so bold a plain background was the best choice.



and teamed with my favourite plaid jacket—not everyone's idea of a match but to me looks great.

and if you are wondering what is on my tippy toes have a look over at my blog. Thanks for reading.

Thia totally rocks!  You are definitely working it!  I think I used to own something similar in 1996.

I would totally wear all of this together!  Really nice styling!

Not everyone could get away with this, but it looks very good on you.  Especially like the purse with it.
