This is how it was made:
I used no pattern.
The top is a very simple chiffon top I draped but I did use french seams! Thank goodness there were few seams lol!
The skirt was draped also.Its a lightweight slightly crinkled cotton. I added the sheer cut outs down the left side for some detail to an otherwise pretty boring skirt. I got the ideal from a Threads magazine.
The skirt has an elastic waist band put on with the serger, turned under and blindstitched so you can't tell the elastic is there at all. The front of the top shows alittle of the stomach... but I wanted the back to show alot! Kinda like... its a little sexy without being out there sexy!!!
From the left shoulder there are 3 long bias strips of chiffon hanging.
I wore this dancing last Saturday and it moved beautifully! I seriously have like $8 dollars in this whole outfit. The fabrics were clearances at Jo anns last year, bought when they had the 50% off all clearance fabrics! Love it when that happens!
