Added Nov 20, 2010
The blouse in this project is a simple variation on pattern 104 in burda magazine 07/2008 (see picture). The original top had a collar and zip closure. I changed the neckline and added buttons instead of the zipper. I used cotton and finished off the armholes with white bias binding. The buttonholes are bound.
I drafted the pattern for the skirt myself, it consistes of two main pattern pieces and a waistband and closes with a zipper at the side. I needed a skirt I can wear during fall / winter so I used a medium-heavy wool blend and lined it with polyester.
Blouse: cotton (about 1 m), bias binding, 4 buttons.
Skirt: Wool blend (about 2.5 m), polyester for lining, zipper, interfacing for waist band, one button
