The twist top has three different lengths, I made the regular top length, also the modest top length and mini top length are included in the pattern. I don’t really see myself wearing anything shorter than the regular top length, but I must admit, everybody in the tester group looked great in the shorter top lengths. Besides the crew neck option, also a v-neck option is included and 4 different sleeve length. So you can make many different options with the twist tee.
That skirt! Wow, it is just two pattern pieces, one for the skirt and one for the waistband, you need to fold and flip and there you are, you have your new twist skirt. Well not exactly, that is in theory how it works but it was a bit puzzling at first what should go where. I lengthened my skirt with a bit more than 10 cm because I prefer skirts on my knees (and I am only 162). The original skirt ends above the knee.
The skirt is really comfortable and can be dressed up or down. I used a french terry for the skirt, so the inside is very soft. I was doubting whether I would use a double sided fabric, which would accentuate the inside of the fabric in the skirt, but I could not find a fabric in my stash that I liked. Just remember to use a fabric that has a coloured wrong side of the fabric otherwise you will see the white inside of the fabric.
Options: Three lengths (mini crop, modest crop and top length), two necklines (crew and v-neck), four sleeve options
Sewing time: actual sewing time, 1 hour each (puzzling time a bit more)
