StyleArc Simply Sally crossover top in woven rayon.
Skirt is Angela Kane’s basic skirt block from her denim pinafore pattern (fits perfectly every time) in some fabric my BIL gave me from Thailand.
Top- Slightly shiny, woven rayon (very sheer), the raw edges were zigzagged on a buttonhole setting rather than overlocked (sheer laziness on my part, couldn’t be bothered threading the overlocker!!!) I do however love this edge finish, especially when it crinkles like that!
Skirt- Some fabric from Thailand which I was advised was NOT silk, I did the flame test and ended up wth a hard ball of plastic :( Underlined in some beautiful soft cotton poplin.
