The pic to the left is the before. Do you see how lackluster it looks? NOt even my big sunshades could help me here. Overall this was an easy pattern and takes no time to make. Great for stashbusting. The skirt is from Butterick 5539 and was very wasy to make. I believe it only takes one yard to make along with elastic for the waistband. I made it out of a cotton knit which was a booger to sew .
