A lace back crop-top with a matching high waist maxi skirt, made of soft jersey and black stretch lace.



I posted a tutorial on my blog for anybody who might want to make the top and skirt themselves. http://www.mollytov.com/lace-top-maxi-skirt/

The skirts an easy project, a good intro to drafting custom fit garments. It can be sewn with a regular sewing machine or on a serger.

The top might be more of an intermediate level project, its takes a little more intuition to draft, and requires stretch binding on the neckline and armholes (which can be a pain in the butt to do) but I have links to great binding instructions if youre willing to try it. Oh, and the top really does look way better if you sew it with a serger, since the seams will show through the lace.

But yeah, let me know what you think! Im always looking for constructive criticism and I'm happy to answer any questions you might have!

I think it is wonderful and you look cute in it. I can't see any flaws with the entire outfit.

Inspiration without application is moot.

You look like this could be in a glamorous movie from the 1950s.

Very beautiful.
