I've been working on a tank top and skirt set from some stash fabric that I seem to have an endless supply of! I think this project represents the 3rd and 4th garments out of this rayon or polyester textured print!
The tank is from a favorite, the Loes Hinse Tank Group that I've made several times. The skirt is an OOP, Simplicity 8863 (circa 1994), that I'm trying out for a future project. I made the straight version shown as a photo and drawing on the pattern envelope. Skirts were so much longer in the 90's. My skirt is 7" shorter than the pattern! True, I'm 5'4'' but that's a lot.
During the rest of the summer, I'll be wearing it with tank untucked over the skirt, like this:
Then when it gets cooler or I need more coverage in cold A/C, I'll wear the tank tucked in with this matching cardi:
I've had the sweater for a while, but it's been a wardrobe orphan lately. It's nice to have something that it goes with. One of the nice things about this set is that it can be worn in a lot of ways--together, with the matching sweater, or as separate pieces with other items from my closet.
