I was going for a retro/pin-up kinda feel for this one.
I used some anchor print lycra fabric and some red + white stripe knit. 
The pocket has a little anchor patch.
TUTORIALS
contour bust top: http://www.whatthecraft.com/tuts/cbust.htm
circle skirt: http://www.whatthecraft.com/tuts/circ.htm


And then this one is some awesome moose print knit fabric and some light blue knit.  Nice and soft and comfy for winter. 
I gave it some nerdy "professor style" elbow patches because they're fun.  And some brown heart shaped buttons.



EDITED TO ADD:
Due to the repeated question of where I got the moose print fabric, I thought I'd post this up front.  Here is a list I've been compiling of online fabric stores: http://www.whatthecraft.com/dirsupplies.html
Most of my fabric is purchased on Ebay.  My list includes my favorite Ebay fabric stores.
