I made this outfit for my godsons christening. I had this lovely Marimekko scallop print fabric and I wanted to make something simple to give the print the main role. A simple dress felt however a bit too simple so I made an outfit of top and skirt that I can also wear separately. The top is fitted so I had to add a zipper. Because my head fitted through the neckline without opening it I could sew the zipper upside down. I can really recommend this, you won’t need anyone to zip you up!
