I go to college for fashion design so I had to make stylized garments, the first and second semester had us make a stylized pant, skirt and shirt, our shirt had to go with our skirt or pant, I made it for the skirt.  I used gold buttons on both to tie them together and also the same red fabric for the contrasting colours on both garments.  I drafted these both from scratch, and pleated the shirt and hemmed the skirt by hand.  I finished both garments in I think a total of 10 hours (not all at once though, the skirt was finished in June and the shirt was done in July)

"action shots" not on a judy. only at the top because I wanted them to be the main photo Tongue  I used instagram just for fun, and added some filters because the lighting where I took them sucked a little.

front complete outfit

back complete outfit.

I realized after handing in my shirt and getting it back that I had did the pleats backwards from my original design, but without looking at the muslin and finished garment together you can't even tell, I may take that bit apart and re-do it with the pleats going the right way and also stitching down the back of them because when I washed it before handing it in, all the pleats came undone, thankfully I didn't have unstitch anything and just pulled and pressed everything back into place.

On with the pictures.

pocket/waistband detail and buttons

shirt back

pleated sleeve detail

backwards pleats and buttons

side vent/slit that I added while sewing the fashion fabric, I decided to do it after making the muslin

the muslin with green piping detail, only because I had a giant roll of green bias tape and I was too lazy to make some  Tongue

Lovely.  All those pleats and tucks and ruffles would have driven me made but they do look good.
