Houston, Texas, ...
I took two patterns and put them together, Simplicity 3640 (Pants E, no pocket) and Burda Easy 8423 (Top C without collar). I made the pants a little longer and cut the shirt collar wider after garment was finished so it could hang off the shoulders more. It was super easy and fun. There was a lot of trying on and pinning involved since i don’t yet have a dress form. Maybe 3 hours start to finish.
Used a stretchy velour material so that it is easy to step in and out yet does not stretch out of place.
