I use a Brother DS140 sewing machine –

Matching cropped tops & pencil skirts are one of my favorite fashion trends of the moment as they are chic, effortless and suitable for many occasions. Since I’m obsessed with bright colors I find it hard to find them in bright hues. But this style is easy to create and sew so I decided to show you how you can sew a cropped top and matching pencil skirt.

Enjoy and thanks for watching!
