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.
