On Zizza

I fell in love with this skirt ages ago when I saw it on Sugar City Journal. I've been planning a blatant copy cat effort ever since. You'll have to excuse me for not linking to the direct sugar city post, it was quite a while a go and it would take ages for me sifting through their archives to find it.



You might notice that I haven't stitched around the appliqu├ęs. I started the project the morning of our photo engagement so after fusing them to the skirt I called it good enough and left it. That will be my first order of business when I get back to my machine.

With the bird skirt I wanted a nice, neutral sweater. I wasn't picky. It could be gray, brown, tan, cream, I wasn't sold on pure white but my mind was pretty open.
Friends, I could not find one. I did finally find a nice pink sweater which I was happy with. Pink works fine as a neutral in Zizza's wardrobe. She was thrilled with it and put it on at the first mention of dressing for pictures. Then, after all that trouble, she ditched it after the first click of the shutter.

Lynne- I've just realized how deficient in Zizza pictures it is around here. You may have been scrolling for a while.

Melissa- thanks for providing the inspiration.
