I made this as a quick project for a BBQ. I started it the night before and finished it off the next morning.
I started off just wanting to make the pattern the way it was, to keep simple and quick, but after finishing the shape, I found that it didn’t suit me, so I added a waist band to give it a little more shape.
I found the shoulder straps ‘wrong’ for me and they wouldn’t ‘sit’ without some work so I just didn’t bother.
I would take some time to make the shoulder straps work, the skirt was also really full,so I’d take some out and probably bone the top.
I used a light cotton blend fabric (red/orange with gold threads)
It’s fully lined with medium weight cotton
The bodice and waist band are also re-enforced with iron on lining (for shape)
40cm Invisible zip
