Chicago, United ...
In short, I wanted to make a skirt with suspenders. I found a picture from a 1950’s pattern and went off of that. I made the suspenders removable so I could have two different skirt looks. I started off with a circle skirt then sewed a rectangle waistlet to the top. I put darts in to make it fitted.
Unfortunately, with the suspenders, I look like a parochial school girl. Whoops! I guess it would be good for cosplaying, right? And yes, I forgot to iron post-sewing. Again!
