Born-again seersucker top + Animal Cruelty Skirt

This is a self-draped (what the heck is the correct terminology for something you’ve made without a pattern, basically by draping it on a mannequin?) top that I made out of some mystery fabric that Oona sent me for the One Cool Thing One Strange Thing swap I organised.
I draped the fabric into a boat necked top and used a cut-out section to create the draped scarf at the back. I then hand crimped and sewed the ends of the scarf into rosettes which I hand sewed onto the shoulders of the top. The hems were finished with a narrow hemmer.
The skirt is pattern 119 from Burda World of Fashion 09/2008 (ah the good old days, when you could head to the country with a hound in the car boot:) made up in teal stretch corduroy.

    OMG this duo is stunning, and it suits you so well! Killer skirts, killer top! Super sexy indeed! ))))))) Love that skirt, I haven’t got that issue, so was actually planning to try and draft something like that myself, and the top is very classy! I am gobsmacked!
