Jersey knit skirt with a jaunty pair of suspenders (”Sweet Suspender” project in the Wendy Mullins book Sew U: Home Stretch). It was incredibly quick and easy — save for the multiple suspender length adjustments I had to make, but that’s just due to my own laziness for not trying it on enough times during the process. Pics were taken when the suspenders were still a bit too long which accounts for the slight sagginess where they cross in the back. It’s an easy fix, though.
