There are always cheapy chiffon fabrics for sale at the store, and I pass them by. Hypothesis: would it be a bon idee to mix chiffon with a sturdier fabric? Why not. I've got another yard of this orange jersey left that has appeared in nearly everything I've made this year.
(The flowers are former Gymboree hair elastics -amputating their elastics was speedier than making my own flowers).
The jersey was a little stretchier than I anticipated. The shoulder straps encase some 2" elastic and I added a small elastic across the back to cinch it a little bit more.
I was planning to hem the skirts, but I got lazy.
Elastic inside the chiffon layer hikes up the sides.
And lookee - no snow! It's not even slightly warm enough to make V wear this yet, but no snow! No snow!
