Spring sewing

A dress and top for Georgie were first on the list. 




They are both adaptations of the same pattern - the Blossom blouse from Meg McElwee's Sew liberated book.  Such a quick and easy pattern, especially the scrappy top - took about 30 mintues to make. I had several scraps of fabric only big enough for one side so mixed and matched to make the top.
.
I'm now in the midst of a more complicated ( and frustrating )skirt for myself, lured by the cheap Burda magazine with many patterns for the price of one - discovering the scant instructions are not quite enough at times. Now hoping it fits as sizing a bit of a gamble too with having to add seam allowances on - anyone else used these patterns with any success?
