Crop Top Set

IMG_2683Here it is, after much ado and many posts about my new obsession with matching sets.IMG_2684

IMG_2679This top was really fun to make and I love how the back turned out. My kids love how “slippery” it is inside. They’re always able to find the really great things in life.

IMG_2590Things I learned during this project: Make the next skirt with a teensy bit more ease-especially if there’s no back vent, and for crop tops, cut them longer than you think you’ll need. Even with all the measuring before making the pattern, I didn’t really consider moving around in it. Let’s just say I won’t be raising my arms very high in this top.

IMG_2593Here’s the finished skirt I previewed last week in my WIP Wednesday Post. I’m thrilled to be done with it, and even more excited to design, pattern, and sew a blouse to go with it. Until then, I’ve got a cream secretary blouse that was my¬†grandma’s that I’m really fired up about pairing with this skirt.
