Description

I used a pair of medium weight cotton curtains I got for £4.50 in the charity shop and turned them into a 2 piece. A full circle skirt with side invisible zip. drafted own pattern but skirt a bit big as I’ve lost weight, when lose more I’ll put a pleat in the front, and a simple pull on top with front and back darts. used bias binding to finish neck line as I only had 1 1/2 hours to make the top from scratch. The suit came out well and is lovely to wear. I added belt loops to skirt. On the shoes added a suffolk punch and button detail

    I love this dress on you. I am now inspired to make the circle skirt that I was thinking of making.

      Thank you, there are loads of sites that show you how to do a full circle skirt, I wonder it took me so long to make one they are really easy to do
