Here’s the completed two-piece dress.

The top is good with trousers. I notice that these trousers stand out inches beyond my body. I guess I need to replace them.

The skirt is good with other tops, too.

My pictures are not good, but the two-piece is very comfortable and I will enjoy wearing it with a jacket so it won’t look so aggressively old ladylike. I also notice that my jacket is definitely too big.

These are the HotPatterns Two Hour Skirt and Tailored Tee. I hate it when people post pictures and then apologize or criticize them. I must either take better pictures to replace these, or come back and remove the editorial comments.
