Details:
The skirt is Simplicity 4753, view D.  The bottom flare of the skirt is a rayon fabric that I had in my stash (I'm going to make a tunic top out of it too, to match the skirt).
The halter top is Simplicity 4998 (whichever view is the top!!), which I did take in quite a bit at the top because they put in too much ease (but then had to let out at the waist and hips, 'cos you know, I've got them Tongue).  The play-by-play is in my blog (link in signature), if you really, really want it Wink.
