I have found that I am not using as many second hand fabrics in Germany as much as what I was in Aus, so I decided to reconstruct a simple blouse. I wanted the flounce to be bigger, but unfortunately I ran out of material. I also added some bias in hopes of emphasising the waist a little bit more. The embroidered detailing in the back is what drew me to this garment in the first place and I think that it suites the blouse. I then made a simple black circle skirt to go with the blouse. All in all I think it turned out OK
