I used some old secondhand patterns. For the skirt- New Look6045, and the top- Simplicity 6443 ( both possibly circa 1980’s ? ) The top is reversible and fastened with back to back buttons. I made the shorts from a trouser pattern but elasticated the waist. I can wear the reversible top with either the mock wraparound skirt or shorts for a variety of changes.
Cotton/ polyester mixes.
