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 :)
