You see, we’re S.L.O.W. sewists…..and can’t justify sewing something that is costume-esque, or an outfit that can only be worn once. Instead, we had to plan an outfit that would a) fit the required challenge and b) could get many other wearings – instead of always being viewed as an oversized piece of candy.
Well, you KNOW you must take off the wrapper to get to the ‘good stuff’….just like you take off a cardigan. We used the bright orange as the main fabric of choice….as a nod to the Reese’s cup wrapper.
The yellow accents of bias and cuffs were to double as the yellow print on the wrapper. Brown and yellow stacked buttons were used to replicate the design of the Reese’s text – yellow text with a brown outline.
The skirt was made to mimic an upside-down Reese’s cup….complete with ridging / edging around the entirety.
How did we achieve this look?? By sewing medium-sized cording evenly around the skirt. Okay – we were pretty pleased with this concept, and look forward to using it on other sewing endeavors in the future!
