Description

Last minute top made for a meeting this morning. It was perfect for a skirt I made a few months ago that was sitting in my closet. The fabric of the top is charmeuse which is very silky and feels good on the skin.

I use the jersey cowl from March 2013 as a base, but I had to cut it out on the bias because the fabric does not provide for stretch lengthwise.The top has cowl neckline and flounce sleeve. I draft the sleeve because I did not want the regular sleeve I needed movement.

The skirt is plain with a bow added at the back and four carriers place at the waistband.

Really like how the look came across nicely and was ready for the day :-)

Material Notes

1 1/4 yd charmeuse
1 yd wool for skirt

    I like it very much. The sleeves are lady like & still good for a meeting, work situation. You look very chic. The shoes are great.

    Lovely and stylish: great balance of the silhouettes and colours of the top and the skirt as an ensemble. The best match.

    Gorgeous outfit fauna, this is fantastic on you. I love the colour and the fabric. The changes to the top have made it even better than the original x
