McCall6757, Vogue 8984 Et Simlicity 1346

First up: Vogue 8984,
This was a super easy make. Both of these are made with ankara print, I added the slit in the front. The purple was made for my mother on mothers day(View B).The yellow (View A) Extremely easy make, I would remake this using a knit. I made the final yellow version slit a tad bit bigger

Skirt Made using Mccalls 6757

The skirt on the other hand was a bit tricky. I made the McCalls 6757 for me bottom left above and my lovely cousin who I promised some of  the dreamy fabric below too.For starters-the pencil skirt fit like a straight skirt and was too big for us both. I pegged the skirt first and then corrected for the size-which next time I would correct the sizing then complete the pegging as the skirt came out tulip shaped and had to be corrected. I added side slits to both skirts as I put the fabrics on the fold. Next time I would have kept the back slit. :)


Simplicity below 1346:
This was an easy make but its short super short, and hits at the widest part of the abdomen, which is very unflattering. With that being said, I do wear this and would remake it-longer, with a belt and belt loops and without the one layer of tulle as it ripped right away on the skirt below.


      Out of pure curiosity about how the two would look together, I combined them on the dress form and.. When you put the Simplicity high-low and Mccalls pencil skirt together you get a wonderful combination :) I should have made them together for one skirt.
