A lace back crop-top with a matching jersey maxi skirt. I posted a tutorial on my blog mollytov.com for anybody who might want to make the top and skirt themselves.
The skirt’s an easy project, a good intro to drafting custom fit garments. It can be sewn with a regular sewing machine or a serger.
The top might be more of an intermediate level project, it’s takes a little more intuition to draft, and requires stretch binding on the neckline and armholes (which can be a pain in the butt to do) but I have links to great instructions if you’re willing to try it. Oh, and the top really does look way better if you sew it with a serger, since the seams will show through the lace.
But yeah, let me know what you think! I’m always looking for constructive criticism!
