I cut about 10 inches off the bottom off this skirt. There wasn't quite enough fabric for a full top (especially after it partially evaporated after a glancing blow with a hot iron. Viscose. Oops.) However, the Maryy pattern from Burdastyle was just right.

Obviously when I say 'just right' I mean, 'just right with some minor modifications'. The elastic at the back of the skirt made it difficult to attach a back bodice and so I brought the straps right round to the sides. The buttons and pleats are all original features.
I didn't think I would love it quite so much. It's super cute.
