I've just finished this outfit for my stepmum to wear to her son's wedding.  It's in summer in Australia so the outfit needed to be cool and comfy so I've used good quality quilting cottons - from a great online shop in NZ called Stitcher's Closet. 


Sorry about the poor quality of this photo.







I used New Look 6515, view C, for the top.  Had to do a fair bit of alteration to the pattern to get it to fit over the bust.  I learned on Craftster that most patterns are for a standard B cup regardless of dress size, and that was very useful info!  My stepmum's measurements were an 18 according to the sizing on the pattern but I cut a 16 and that fitted perfectly.  The skirt was just adapted from some other dress pattern I had.

Check out the machine embroidery on the band under the bust - I'm doing that every chance I get.  She looks beautiful in it  Grin

Comments and criticism always appreciated.  Thanks for looking!

I agree, she does look beautiful in it.  I like that you added a strip of the blouse fabric to the skirt.  It really pulls the outfit together.

It is very lovely and it looks comfortable too.  I love the embroidery on the band - it really classes up the outfit.
