The shirt is from a cap-sleeve tee pattern I drafted myself, and is reversible for either a scoopneck or low-backed look. The skirt is two layers- the bottom layer is some stripy cotton I bought years ago, and the top layer is from an old bed skirt. With these garments I was going for a retro-gothic-lolita feel. The top works really well as either a causal or formal shirt- for choir concerts I wear it with a black velvet skirt, but I also wear it with jeans sometimes. The skirt can be a fun little thing in summer, and is great with boots and leggings in the winter.
Shirt: black stretch velvet
Skirt: cotton and recycled eyelet
