Description

This outfit has 3 parts:
1) a circle skirt with vichy pattern
2) a top with vichy pattern (small)
3) a pettycoat (circle skirt with ruffles)
This was my second project that I sewed. The skirt was not so difficult, but the top was really a hell of a job. I had to downsize it, because it turned out far too big, and the zipper was also not that easy.
The petticoat was a lot of work, because of the ruffle: it was about 5 meters… Finally, I am very pleased with the result :-)

p.s.: the patterns are from Burda Easy Fashion spring/summer 2005

Material Notes

- cotton 100% : vichy design green-white bigger (skirt) and smaller (top)
- fine bridal tule
