Simplicity 5099 Top in Floral Knit

This Floral Knit top is made from a Viscose knit remnant from Bedford Fabrics in St Helens, Merseyside, UK and cost me 50p. I started this top for the Pattern Review Contest, '1 pattern Multi Looks' but it turned into a UFO. I used the pattern Simplicity 5099 which is for a woven top. I have since lost weight and of course this is a knit not a woven so I shaped the side seams a little taking them in by 1 to 2 inches at different points. I still think the top is a little loose, but I will hold off any more alterations until I've put it through the washer as viscose tends to shrink a little on washing.

Various skirt lengths

For some bizarre reason I own 5 brown skirts, in varying styles and sizes, some are pinned at the back with giant bag closures for these shots. I've also pulled hems up to see what shorter skirts look like.
left to right (and top to bottom) they are
1 Cord with front seam
2 Stretch skirt pulled up to below knee
3 Long flared cotton skirt
4 Straight skirt with deep front split
5 Straight skirt with front seam
6 Stretch skirt on calf length
7 Cord skirt pulled up to above knee straight skirt
8 Cord skirt pulled up to below knee A line skirt.
