How did you decide your fabric measurements for the top and skirt?

It's been a while, but I think the shirring was 1 1/2 times my bust measurements and my skirt was 2 times. The shirring stretches and shrinks in all the right places, so it's pretty forgiving.

Did you use a shelf bra or is it supportive enough on its own?

I am wearing my ordinary everyday black bra. It is hidden well by the straps and ruffle. Smiley

I have to brag! I'm so proud of me! I wanted a lovely summer dress, and didn't want to go out and buy a pattern. I wanted something comfortable yet pretty. So I whipped up this baby! WDYT?

*please forgive my nasty photography, but I had no one to help me take a picture, and I've been meaning to post this for ages.*



Details:
The black with white dots top is shirred, it has a small ruffle at the top and bottom. I did ruffled straps as well. The skirt is sort of shirred into the top to give it a bit of give. It doesn't look like it in the picture, but the top is very flattering, making me look flat on my tummy (soooo not the case!) and accentuates my hourglass waist.

That looks like it drapes just beautifully! What kind of fabric is it?

Thanks everyone for you lovely positive comments Smiley I am so proud of myself Smiley And I will be continuing. I've started making 2 cute tops - and when this crazy month of uni is over, I hope to go nuts and sew a complete summer wardrobe Smiley Fingers crossed!

I'm with Cooleyswife  - the first thing I thought when I saw them is how nicely it fit your bottom.  Very classy looking - you could dress them up or down and still look amazing in them.
