30DoC: As Seen on TV/At the Movies or "The Annie Savoy Outfit"

Friends, the first time I saw Bull Durham, I knew Annie Savoy was a powerhouse.  I aspired from that point on to be the most confident version of myself and to wear fabulous clothes.  And maybe learn something about baseball because that might come in handy.

For this part of the 30 Day Challenge, I made the outfit Annie wears when choosing between Crash and Nuke. 


 For my version, I took in the sides of a v-neck sweater that hadn't been worn in ages, made a skirt using some flannel in my stash and the skirt portion of Vogue 8701, and threw on my red belt for good measure.


 I love the skirt.  It's heavy and warm and will be well used during winter when I grow tired of pants.  I'm already plotting how to work flannel into other parts of my wardrobe.


For the lining I used the fitted sheet that was leftover from this sheet set.  I like to think that should I have an upskirt incident (this IS the Windy City - these things need to be planned for), my fabulous lining might distract from ... anything else.

 

 The sweater might be too bulky to put in the skirt.  If I do wear the sweater and skirt together again, I'll definitely include the belt since it helps to break up all the black and white.This is easily one of the warmest/nicest looking outfits I have to wear around this winter. 


Friends, are you looking to add more flannel into your wardrobe for this upcoming winter?  Let me know what outfits you are planning to make!  We can compare flannel plaids :)

  6. You made it! hehee I really do love this outfit... perhaps it's being a child of the 80's that does it. :)

    I love the high rise backdrop you're sporting.

  7. I have a light blue plaid in my stash for pajama pants though it'd be fun to use for a skirt. I love your outfit, and what a view out the window! Go you for keeping up with this challenge!

  8. P.S. I love baseball almost as much as Annie Savoy so if you have questions about the game I'm happy to help ;) She owns some of my fave baseball quotes, including the "Church of Baseball" one!
