Australia Day long weekend

Managed to get some sewing done over the long weekend.
Both fabrics were gifted and of some unknown vintage.
The skirt is drafted to my personal measurements featuring a centre back invisible zip, waist facing and lining. Due to the nature of the print,
I spent a bit of time playing with the layout so as not to have
focal points in the wrong places.
The top is a Lutterloh pattern, tweaked a little.

I inserted an invisible zip in the side seam as per the pattern, though it is roomy enough to take on and off without opening it to do so. If I make another of similar weight fabric I would eliminate the zip, however if the fabric was heavier I would be inclined to leave it in.
Very pleased with this outfit.
