I saw the skirt in a dress shop and was determined to make it rather than pay the enormous amount they wanted for it. It took me a few goes to get the design correct. The skirt is basically a rectangle piece front and back in one on a lopsided yoke and a lowered waistband into which I threaded elastic. I topstitched with a twin needle. Mobile phones cameras come in handy. I thought I may as well make a top to go with it so I used Vogue 8670 and made it exactly as they said which is unusual for me as I am more likely to adjust a pattern.
