Not sure I would really wear these two garments together, but hey, one post is easier than two!
The floral top is based on the Banksia top. I didn’t have a lot of fabric and wanted a simpler tee style shirt so I left off the button placket and collar. I can’t decide if the fabric is fun and classy or over the top cheesy, but whatever. It’s straight polyester, clings when its dry out and was kind of pain to sew, but I can’t resist a loud print.
The skirt is McCall’s 3830 which is a pattern for a simple pencil skirt. I tapered it down at the bottom to get more of that pencil skirt shape, but maybe should have tapered more. I also added pockets and wish I would have added a waistband instead of just the facing the pattern called for. The fabric is a wool blend from Discount Fabrics. I finished the zipper seam and slit with Liberty bias tape (alas, one of the only things I could afford from the Liberty store…)
This classic autumn collection has designs inspired by the Scottish countryside.
