I’ve been wanting to make a separate set forever. They’re perfectly cute together and still adorable apart. When I saw the below photo I just knew I had to used my linen grid fabric from Purl Soho. I bought the neon pink version which features a — inch grid pattern.
Here’s the deets!
The Fabric: Linen Grid by Purl Soho
The Making: I couldn’t decide on what patterns I was going to use for the top and bottom. I originally planned on using the Brooklyn Skirt from Seamwork Mag but my printer has been on the fritz lately. Another Colette pattern, Rue, worked perfectly and it had a skirt only tutorial!
I ran into another problem with the pattern for the top. I initially planned on using the sloper pattern I purchased months before from BurdaStyle but I realized I purchased the plus size version. I ended up using Colette Laurel for my top.
The Rue skirt tutorial was super easy and I love how full the skirt is. Plus it has pockets!
The Mods: The only modifications I made were to the top. For the Laural top, I simply shortened the pattern to sit right over the top of the skirt. Added snaps to the back instead of a zipper.
The Styling: What I love about this outfit is that is three in one. Easter morning I wore the top and skirt together then I traded the skirt for jeans. The skirt can be worn with a different top as well.
