How to Go from Casual to Dressy in Seconds?

Hello Loves!
My Labor Day look goes from Casual to Dressy Casual in 0.2 seconds! 

Since my outfit goes perfectly with the Trend spin linkup - Red, White, or Blue for Labor Day, I decided to share my link and participate in my first linkup ever. This is hosted by two blogs, Walking in Memphis in High Heels and The Fashion Canvas.

As you know I am a sucker for a knit pencil skirt. And this is my go to sewing project pretty much anytime I need a new outfit LOL! I made this skirt last week. I knew Labor Day was approaching and summer was coming to an end so I wanted to rock bright white one last time before the season was over. I ordered some off-white double knit fabric so I can make a midi pencil skirt for the fall/winter season :-) I'm usually apprehensive about wearing white. One reason is it can get really dirty and the other is of course the idea that white makes you look bigger. But I think in this skirt I am my true size! ;-) I love this skirt! It is so comfortable and it is versatile! I used the same process (here) of making the skirt with a 1 inch hem and a 1 inch elastic waistband. An instructional tutorial is coming soon! 
The white double knit used to make the skirt was ordered from fabric.com. It is a Ponte Fino Double Knit and it feels amazing. I was easy to cut, sew, and wear! LOL! I definitely recommend this type of fabric. I actually got it on sale but it was average price for a double knit.

I hope you enjoyed your Labor Day Weekend! Have a Great Day and if you are headed back to work enjoy your first day back!

My birthday was last Friday, August 29. I did something I usually don't do, go shopping outside of a fabric store. LOL! I got some amazing deals and a new outlet in Charlotte, NC and I will share them with you this week! As well as my birthday celebration!

Thank you for Reading!
