Me Made Mondays with Frabjous Couture

Marina is back!!! I missed her last week. You should see the dress she posted, it's beautiful. Now here's the catcher, she wore it to take her children out for ice cream...ice cream!!! This is elegance personified. Do take a look.
My me made is nothing on the level of Marina's, but I like it nonetheless :)
You may remember the Fabulous Free Pattern Friday top that I did a couple of weeks ago,
well, here's the skirt version.
There are 4 rectangles, the front of the skirt which is a longer rectangle. The back of the skirt which is a short rectangle. And finally, the 2 long rectangles that go around the bottom.
I'll be back on Friday with all the instructions!
I did make the ballerina top. It's off of my basic top pattern that I use for almost every knit top that I make. There's elastic around the neckline and the top of the sleeves. The elastic helps to keep the top in place when worn.
I wore the skirt to our Haute Couture club meeting last Saturday and everyone seemed to like it. By the way, if you are ever in Chicago on the first Saturday of the month, let me know as we would love to have you join one of our meetings.
