It is some kind of True Romance Saga Part II
I used the same fabric for the blouse as the original True Romance Project. Different pattern (self drafted as usual), but same shifting and sliding away, this time I was ready for it and embraced it :)
Self drafted pattern, very easy. Basically, it is a mini skirt base (no elastic bands, no jersey fabric) with chiffon draping: on the bottom, on the top. Fabric piece was 3 metres wide and about 50-60 cm long (can’t remember), so there was hellovalot gathering to do :)
Self drafted corset imitation. BUT! No boning :)
Just two layers of fabric with iron-on stiffening interfacing on both of them. So it tucks the belly in pretty well. ;)
