L'Orange du Jour

The last few days I've been working on refashioning several items that all have something in common.  If you haven't guessed by now, they're all the color orange!

And why might that be...?  I mean, besides orange being an awesome color.  Because Style Imitates Art demands it for Monday's inspirational painting.  (and no, it's not the picture on the left.) 

Anyway, that's the excuse I've used to take on the following pieces:

1) a made-from-scratch tunic top that I refashioned to fit earlier and then decided it needed more work;

2) a skirt refashioned from a long ago thrifted floral maxi dress that no longer fit; and

3) a mild hi-low hemmed underskirt made from the lining of the above-mentioned maxi dress.

See them at View the Clothes from Summer, "L'Orange du Jour."


  1. Now you're getting into one of my favorite colors. I find it empowering! And I see that you're working your magic again.

    1. Yes, I remember that. I'm hoping I get the same vibe. Having just finished them, I wonder how they'd look on all together...hmmm
