This little ensemble is made up of a gathered circle skirt in Black and Grey Jacquard from my fall collection, paired with this Simple Knit Top project in black matte jersey.
I multiplied my waist circumference by 2.5 to get the pattern circumference (and then divided by two and made one pattern for both the front and the back).
The waistband is grosgrain ribbon, with long ties at the side zipper so you can make a bow.
I edge stitched the grosgrain to the skirt.
I'm wearing a chiffon petticoat for a little extra fullness.
I made one little design change to the Simple Knit Top project. I sewed gathers at the shoulders for a pretty drapey look.
