Im very new to sewing and this is one of my very first projects.
I had a playful polka dot fabric lying around so I decided to make a nice and easy casual skirt with an exposed elastic top. I just made a basic skirt then added layers to create cowled sides, as I am a big fan of the volume it adds to my hips.
I also reworked Miasu’s contour bust pattern to fit my measurements, but unfortunately I am at this stage unable to figure out how to join the two pieces together, considering I really want to keep the elastic band on the skirt!
Due to the bust being a separate, waist-length piece, I just gave it a couple of buttons as a closure at the back.
Top – cotton/polyester blend
Skirt – Some kind of polyester
