I based this outfit on an old 1980s dress pattern (Style 1002). I modified the original pattern quite a lot: changed the dress into a matching skirt and top, used buttons instead of a zip and a fitted skirt instead of a gathered one. I have worn the top and skirt seperately but unfortunately I’m still waiting for the right occassion to wear them together as a ‘dress’.
