I made the top using Simplicity pattern 1364, a reproduction vintage pattern. I made just a couple of slight modifications: added length (standard for me!), lowered the front neckline by 1cm and added some bias tape to the sleeves. The bias tape is a pretty liberty print lovingly made by a dear friend 40+ years ago. I had to use it!
The skirt is a self drafted half circle skirt. Apparently I did not learn from my mistakes made with this circle skirt as I had to take this one in twice. I'm starting to think I should just stick to my pleated midi skirts, circle skirts and I don't get along! If only they weren't so pretty!
