A new top and skirt.
What should've been a 30 minute-from-the-time-you-cut-your-fabric-to-finished-top took me going on 3 days to make! And the reason why you may ask? My slubby knit fabric was so slubby, the 'slubs' were see-through. So not me. But perseverance prevailed and I hung in there and finally! completed this top and it's ready for public wearing. Having made the Kirsten Kimono Tee 2 times before, it is clearly one of my favorites. The free pattern from Maria Denmark can be found here.
This top was made from my modified pattern flaring a small at the top to a medium at the bottom and (this time) cutting the neckline in @ 3/8" to make it not quite so wide.
This skirt was made from another favorite pattern I've already made a gazillion times before, okay only 2, well, maybe 3 counting one for my daugher :), NEWLOOK 6192, view B.
from my thrift store treasure box, and used the entire process as a skill-builder. At first I wasn't sure I really cared for this skirt, as the fabric finished with a 'stiffer' flared look than I wanted. But with a more form-fitting top, it looks okay, I think.
