Ensemble is better

Added Jun 7, 2008

by elenasebastopol

Madrid, Spain






This is an ensemble, a skirt and a blouse that can be worn separately or together (when together, it looks like a dress). I made the skirt with the party skirt how to, but I made pleats instead of gatherings. The blouse is based in the anda pattern, but it is opened, I added a diagonal button row (I’m thinking about changing the colour of the buttons since the row is not noticeable).

Material Notes

Cotton fabric, with a nice pillow fight print.

    this is gorgeous! I love it together, and then apart they’re still really wearable and cute. Really smart ideas there. _ xx

    I really like the diagonal button row. Great detail. The idea of an ensemble using composite parts of several patterns is an endless source of inspiration

    How adorable is the fabric? I love it. I like as a dress and I like separates. I specially like te buttons on the front on the diagonal.

    The pattern on the fabric makes it so youthful. It looks great on you and it’s so versatile.

    It looks very good! Well made, and the design is very cute. Love the idea of making a skirt-shirt-dress. Cute AND smart. Great job!
