It's an adorable style. And I have a fairly large amount of this brown and black striped jersey that I got forever ago with the intention of making striped leggings to go with my steampunk stuff, which I've never gotten around to. I still have plenty left after doing this to do that still. Here's mine:
hahahhhaaaa... Those are kind of terrible pictures. I swear it's cute. I'm very happy with it. It looks much better on me than it does on Tipsy. It's not a very exciting color, I wouldn't normally go for that, but it's what I had. I didn't really follow the tutorial, I mostly just took the dress design as inspiration. The skirt is your basic circle skirt (with no need to hem cuz yay jersey!) The band around the ribs is just a strip sewn around the top of the skirt. I had to gather the skirt a bit cuz I cut the waist in the skirt a bit too big. But it was an easy fix. For the top part, I measured the distance underneath my bust from the center of my chest to my side seam. I added 2 inches to that to account for the overlap. Then I kind of guessed how high up over my chest I wanted it to go and cut 4 triangles where the bottom width was my first measurement, and the height was the guess I'd made. I cut 4, because then I could sew two together and then turn them inside out to have nice neat finished edges on the top. Plus this fabric was just a teensy bit thin, and I worried about it being see through on the chest. So I made the two triangles, pinned them to the front, overlapping a bit, and sewed them on. After that was done I realized the back was too far down for me to wear a bra, and I'm just not able to work with the whole no-bra thing. So I cut a small rectangular strip and sewed it across the back from one triangle to the other. That covered my bra band perfectly. I sewed ribbon to the points of the triangles for straps, so I can tie a big pretty bow behind my neck.
I though the color would be a problem for me, but the style turned out so cute that it really doesn't bother me. Plus I just love circle skirts. They're so twirly!
