Top : Like I do with recipes I just used the pattern to do my own thing. I used 3 different fabrics and made it reversible with buttons instead of bra hooks.
Skirt : I made my own pattern for an ultra simple jersey pencil skirt.
I used 1 and 1/2 fat quarters of cotton print (1 of one print and 1/2 of the other. And 1 and 1/2 yards of jersey. I do NOT recommend using a stretchy fabric with one that doesn’t however. But I did not have enough of anything and I wanted to make the matching skirt so I made it work.
