I made this using the Contour Bust pattern and an a-line skirt. I really like it. Next time, though, i would definitely make the bodice with 1/2 inch seams instead of 1/4 inch seams.
The third picture is of one of my models in a fashion show wearing it.
I used fine waled corduroy with a cute little fruits and flowers type print.
