The Style Defining Marylin Twin Set:

Coming as a stylish pair, this bra and skirt combination are elegant enough for any spring or summer activity. When used in unison, the pair act to enhance the appearance of the waist, whilst elongating any silhouette, to bring a whole new level of vintage glamour to the 21st century. Our sample features medium-weight cotton linen for that extra-vintage aesthetic.

CREATIVE TIPS:

As far as challenges go, the skirt button stand and vent are the only considerations – making this pattern ideal for beginners hoping to improve their skills as far as plackets and vent construction goes. For intermediate sewers, the pattern will be very straight forward, and we’d recommend using a cotton canvas/crepe for a more passive look, or bright tones if you’re keen to recreate a fun, yet timeless style.
