I pin fitted the NL skirt pattern and found that I only needed to do my usual swayback adjustment and reduce the length from waist to hip by two inches. I then cut out the fabric for the skirt. I am using View B, the skirt view that the model is wearing.
I then decided to pin fit Vogue 8815, a peplum top that seems to be growing in popularity. I had to make a 1.25 inch FBA. I eliminated the resulting side dart increasing the vertical dart and requiring an adjustment in the peplum also. You can see his here.
I am using this fabric that I acquired from Les Fabrique Fabric store in Charlottesville, VA. The peplum top will be made from the floral fabric and a pencil skirt will be the solid yellow. This fabric has such a retro/vintage look to it and I fell in love with it instantly when I saw it.
