San Jose, Costa ...
Used the afternoon tea top and modified it to make a 50s circle skirt and bodice combo.
I cut the pieces and then sewed the bodice by hand, because I was, ironically, working on a deadline, and for the last week you would see me sewing like a crazy woman on the bus, on my breaks, etc. But I found that I liked the dress so much more because of the hand sewing. I joined the circle skirt to the bodice using my sewing machine, and used a rolling hem foot to do the circle skirt hem. On the side, I improvised a petticoat to add volume to the skirt.
