This is one of my classmates modelling the set for a photoshoot our class had at the end of the summer for a magazine project we had to put together. What better feature for a fashion class' magazine than a photo spread featuring our own work? The important part about this, though, is that her hair matches the clothes!

These are two of my favourite things I've ever made. Sadly, they're for school and, therefore, are a size I will never fit into, haha. C'est la vie, though, because I love them anyway. Smiley

I made the skirt last spring and the blouse at the beginning of the summer. Both were completely designed, drafted, and constructed by me.

The skirt is a lightweight green wool. Each ruffle and the skirt itself is fully lined in that lightweight textured fabric. One of my teacher's couldn't believe I actually used it for lining; apparently it's really hard to work with? I mostly just had issues with over-ironing and fraying. Anyway, I love love love the way it turned out. Pretty much my favourite design ever, tricksy as it was (there were over 50 pieces! Shocked).

The blouse is mostly a poly-blend broadcloth. I really wanted to make a top to go with my skirt, so I decided to use the contrast yoke and sleeves to connect the two. The front felt really plain compared to the back, so I added the tie at the collar. I know it's a tad silly to have two bows on the front when the skirt and blouse are worn together, but that's okay.

Aww, thanks for all of the wonderfully positive feedback, everyone. You've made me feel really good about my work.

Extremely cute!  I especially like the skirt.  Pinned!
I'm glad you like it. Hopefully I'll get the chance to actually have it in a line sometime in the (distant) future.

I was a little hesitant at putting them together, but I'm glad I did since it turned out so well in the end. That wool is wonderful to work with, too.

Well, I'm impressed, very professional looking work.
I spent more time than I'd like to admit picking out and fixing seams or anything that looked a little off, haha. It was definitely worth it for the finished product, though. Smiley

You and me both, haha. Some day I hope to make it again in a full size range.
