It started with a skirt but, as I had some remnants of the fabric, it couldn’t but end with an ensamble: a skirt + blouse that together look like a dress:). The skirt is well-fitted and comfortable to wear if made of fabric with elastic fibre.
Hardly I ever wear these things separately but, of course, the skirt is easy to combine with any other matching item, for example, with a self-made crocheted top (the link, where I took the pattern, is mentioned).
I like to use floral prints for shirts so for the blouse I chose the pattern from old Burda issue, 2/2002, #106.

      Thank you for the nice words. The skirt fits well indeed, it’s worth making.

    Your skirt is very well done! I tried this one – not an easy one to adjust. And I like that you did the top with the same fabric – I may try this as well ;-) Cheers!

    Great skirt… I like how you made the blouse in the same fabric. At first I thought it was a dress! very cute… And isn’t this pattern a dream to work with?

      Thank you very much; it is really such kind of a pattern. If it’s made of mono-colour, it looks elegant ( like yours), if of fabric with prints – it’s playful and romantic. Really nice pattern.
