Two great patterns here! The Megan Nielsen ‘Briar’ cropped top and Burdastyle stretch pencil skirt. This is my third version of the Briar and I decided to add a rough peplum for a bit more coverage but mainly because peplums are so fun. I am so impressed with this skirt pattern, especially the geometric shapes in the front panel and the exposed zip in the back…the fit was so right straight from the pattern, which doesn’t seem to happen too often.
