While trying to transition with this summer-like weather were still having in the east, I wanted a light fabric that gives me a denim vibe.  Then I remembered this cotton twill that’s simply beautiful……and paired with this Rag & Bone satin makes it even more special.  I decided to line the skirt with a crepe de chine to give it a bit more structure.

The top was made using Vogue V8840 with the following alterations:

-Added a 30″x14″ gathered sleeve

-Removed the front seam

-Added a 10″ invisible zipper to the back

-Added elastic around the bottom of the sleeve

The skirt was made using vintage McCalls 2905 view D with the following alterations:

-Remove 8″ from the length of the hem

-Added a 3.5″ high waist

-Added  an 8″ side zipper
