This weekend was a busy one. We had a houseful of ladies for my chum Bek's baby shower, a delicious dinner party, church and Dr Who, phew.
In between all the excitement I was able to get a little sewing done, yay.
I had been intrigued by the matching two-pieces that have been popping up a lot recently, and when I bought Vogue 1247, the skirt with its awesome front pockets, sealed the deal.
I lengthened the skirt by about 3 inches because some fellow sewers warned that the skirt is on the short side.
I didn't bind the seams on the pockets, as the pattern suggested, because I am a a little bit lazy and my sewing time was short.
The top is my go to pattern, Newlook 6983. I shortened the tunic a lot so that the hem would sit just below the waist.
