Skirt and shirt I made late last year. The skirt was originally part of a dress for which I started making an intricately pleated bodice before realising there was absolutely NO way it was going to fit my tiny bust without a pointy 50s bra.
Skirt: Clearance quilting fabric from work (the reason I didn’t practice the bodice first)
Top: Marc Jacobs wool blend
