Bodice altered from Simplicity 4136 so that the built-in blouse is unnecessary and the bib and back is higher. Skirt from Simplicity 2401 with pockets. Since I used a plaid of limited yardage from my fabric stash, I had to simply serge the bottom of the skirt and add lace, because there wasn't enough fabric for a proper hem (or the skirt would be too short for my slip). Also, I had to cut the straps parallel to the selvage instead of on the bias (which would have given it the nice diagonal contrast effect like with the bands), but oh well...

I love the lace on the bottom! What a great workaround!
