I made this versatile playsuit from a vintage 1947 pattern, Advance 4147, which I purchased on Etsy. It combines a midriff top, high-waisted shorts, and a buttoned skirt. I made the top reversible so it could match both the skirt and/or the shorts. Perfect for a summer frolic!
More pics on my blog, Male Pattern Boldness.
More info on how I made it here.
I used a tropical cotton print for the top and shorts and an old cotton sateen top sheet for the skirt (and top). The shorts have a standard side zipper, and the skirt closes with large vintage plastic buttons. Under the blouse, BIG shoulder pads — BIG!
This collection will make you shine in front of the camera!
