Description

I had to try the basic skirt sloper pattern as well, and I had this stretch denim in my stash. I bought some neon piping last time in Copenhagen, and now I knew what to do with it! I thought the zipper was nice together with the yellow piping, even if I bought it to make a handbag, but it was nice to use at the back of the skirt as well :) Since the zipper opens from the middle I had to use it as split for the skirt, and therefore I used an invisible zipper for the left side of the skirt.
I made the yellow top for fun, just wanna have something to fit with the skirt. Since I had to cut a part of the zipper I decided to use it at the back of the top. I have used the basic bodice and sleeve sloper pattern, with some adjustments. I wanted to have a wider neck in front and since the zipper was so short I made a V-neck at the back. I made a tiny peplum to make the bodice a bit longer. As bias I have used denim jersey around the neck and beside the zipper, and I sewed some sparkles with the zipper to cheer it up a bit :)

Material Notes

Stretch denim / yellow and denim jersey.

      I can only aspire to be as good as you and the rest of my lovely sewing friends on here. The. Outfit you made is just so eye catching well made and best of all it’s fantastic on you. I have just finished the asymmetrical. Dress from the may issue. It’s turned out so well that I’m now cutting another one. It was in a petite size so it’s been altered quite a bit. Most of what I’m making now is for our holiday at the end of Sept. There will be a flurry of projects posted then lol x

    Your outfit is awesome, and looks nice on you.The colour combination is great. I especially like what you did with the top. At first I thought you used a rhinestone zipper, but I like how you got the same effect at probably a considerably less cost. Good luck.
