Have to admit, I've been a little unsure about the matching two-piece idea, but think this shows that it can work. What do you think? Will you wear them out together or keep as separates?
I might wear this 'out in the real world' as a two piece because to be truthful - it really does look like a dress and I don't really know what my trepidation was to wear two matching patterned items of clothing? Its kind of a fun way to boost the me-made wardrobe as separates but with the bonus of having a matchy-matchy outfit too.
Looks good!I was thinking about your comment on my Polly top. I was wondering if taking a couple of cms out of the centre front as well as/ instead of the side seams might fix any gapeing. Mine still gapes if the straps don't sit right on my shoulders.
Hi Tamsin - yes that is a great idea about a centre front seam - I won't be able to do that on my Polly top due to the placement of the rose / floral design. I think it would be too noticeable.Maybe on my next one (if there ever will be) I could take a section out of the centre front so its not as wide? Might be possible to do seen as though it doesn't take up too much fabric.
This is so cool ! I love the concept. I guess the trick is in finding a fabric that will work just as well for both top and skirt.
Thanks Sara. Yes I think I may be converted to the two-piece idea!
This looks fantastic! And I love that you have two separate pieces to mix and match with other projects, as well as a coordinated outfit.
Thanks Sue. I had quite a bit of the black dots fabric so I thought I may as well give it a go!
Great outfit and I love that fabric!
Thanks. John Lewis sale fabric ; )
Looks Great on you! I am stealing this idea. :-)
My pleasure ; ) Steal away. I would love to see what you make too!
I love the fabric! And because of the black and white, it's very versatile. Great job!
Thanks so much x
