I finished my knock-off skirt and top!!!
I started with many pictures of the skirt style I wanted to copy and decided that the plaid one would be the easiest to see what the original pattern looked like
Here is a picture of the skirt pieces in progress, and the pocket before and after being "scrunched"
After I finished the skirt I used some of my MANY yards of black knit fabric to try different shapes for the tops that I had seen in this designer's 2013 spring collection. Below you can see examples of the scalloped, panel and bat-wing tees that she will be using.
This was so much fun to make and I'm going to try it in some different fabrics for fall .
