    Wow – this is very similar to a project I had in mind to do – and yours looks wonderful! I was thinking of using a vintage Vogue pattern – http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/v2934-products-5480.php?page_id=265&search_control=display&list=search

    And then Kasia for the skirt, using a block coloured fabric (probably black or dark grey) with a pretty cotton pattern contrast bias binding edging and for the lining. Great minds think alike! Seeing the lovely job have done has spurred me on!
