Skirt

Join 2 full granny squares together at two sides to form a tube. 

Waistband

Finishing 

Sew snap to back opening.

Jacket

Sew granny square for back of jacket (rounds 1-6 only) and 4 granny squares for front of jacket (rounds 1-3 only) together as shown in picture below. Note that only 1 of the small squares is attached to the large square on each side (leave the other small squares unattached for armholes). The two small squares on each side will be a bit taller than the middle bigger square.  With RS tog, sew shoulder seams together for about 5 stitches (this will only be to about the middle of the small squares).
