This top and skirt were made in 2011. The top is burda magazine 02-2008, blouson 123. The skirt is based on my measurments. I did the best that I could with placing and matching the large print. The result is not perfect, but I didn’t have enouph material and my efforts to match the prints at the side seams were limited by the pattern.
I didn’t wear it when I made it, because the skirt was a little loose. I put it aside with some other stuff to fix it in the future, but I mysteriously lost it. I had totally forgot about it, until I discovered it a few weeks ago. Now it’s much better! I gained some weight! The prints are still unmatched but now I have these grey pumps to match the outfit:)

    The outfit looks so good no-one would noticed the sides. I think the print is awesome and the pattern placement at the front is perfect. You seem to be able to wear any colour and look great.

      Thank you very much for all the kind comments! This print gave me a really hard time!! But I liked it when I saw it at the fabric store, it had a vintage feeling.

    This is really cool! I’m a big fan of using printed fabric. I always struggle with placement of prints on my dresses, but you did a nice job!

      Thank you very much!!! I have noticed that you love prints:) For me it was more difficult because I don’t use so often printed fabrics and I don’t have much experience. And this particular print was hard. It is not so good at the sides and this bothers me very much!!
