Description

This is a two piece set I made at the end of 2015 using a Vogue skirt pattern (view C of Vogue 8328) and a Burda top pattern (Burda 7051, view D). The fabric is from Tessuti fabrics in Sydney, and while it’s a gorgeous material it frays like crazy and caused me lots of stripe matching hell and zipper grief (requiring lots of rework and then a “design change” for the top). I really like the shape of neckline and armholes on this top, and the puffed out look in the front is not the pattern’s fault – I left off the waist darts! Oh and the skirt is excellent for twirling without being very revealing! You can read more and see more pictures in “this post”: http://upsewlate.blogspot.com.au/2015/12/set-theory-riviera-stripes.html on my blog.

Thanks
Gabrielle

      Thank you – it was one of those happy experiences where the outfit ended up looking just like I hoped (though getting there wasn’t fun!).

    You do have a good eye for pretty fabric. :-)

    I like the set, looks fun and girly. Separates are an efficient way of building one’s wardrobe as both pieces can be paired individually with other items of clothing.

    Nicely done!

      Thank you, and yes, separates are good for wardrobe building. Lately I mostly wear dresses though, or pants – partly I guess because I make a lot of dresses…
