My Sewing Mojo Came Back - again!

I had traced a pattern for a top, but it seems like it was forever ago. I finally decided to cut it out tonight. It's New Look 6828:

Here's a picture of the top being cut out:

I had enough left over to make a skirt. I realized that the knit fabric is kind of thin - maybe it's a mesh fabric - and that it would have to have an underskirt to prevent see-through. Since it's a red-and-white print paisley, I found a white knit to go under the skirt. I cut a rectangle of the white for the underskirt and used Simplicity 9265 to cut the overskirt. I will probably stitch the two parts together at the waist, as I do not anticipate any future skirts needing an extra layer. I will have to think about that.
