Great skirt! I love these unusual shapes, they provide much more interest than the usual skirt patterns. The fabric is very attractive. I think your version looks quite a lot better than the one on the pattern illustration. That jacket is a swing style - I have just made one from a CNT pattern, and I like it a lot. Love to see the Vogue one, which is more structured (set-in sleeves, shaped back, etc) reviewed when you get around to it!

The skirt looks beautiful in the fabric you chose. Thanks for the tip about shortening the pattern.

Pam, I used Simplicity 5796 for the top. I edited my review to add it. Serge is a twill weave fabric that drapes quite nicely (sergé in French, maybe there's a better word in English, the only place I've seen it in the glossary of C Shaeffer' Sew Any Fabric ). I'm not sure about the fiber content of this one as it was on the bargain wall. I used polyester serge in the past and it tend to pucker a lot wich was not the case here so, I guess it might be a blend, not sure. Thanks for the nice compliments.

Such nice fabric. The skirt hangs very gracefully.

Beautiful outfit! Would you share the pattern number for the top, please? Is "serge" a drapey fabric similar to rayon? I'm not familiar with this fabric name.
