To start with the blouse. I made this a few years ago when I was still taking sewing lessons. It has raglan sleeves and 4 pleats in the front. It’s a very easy pattern… and it is one of my favorite blouses…. I don’t know why I never used this pattern again.
The skirt is from burda. It has a godet in the back (I hope you can see it in the pictures!). It’s a very easy skirt to make. I was actually a little afraid of doing the godet but it worked out great. This is also on e of my favorite pieces that I have made so far… again I don’t know why I never made a second one…
hmmm, maybe I just don’t like repeating??
satin for the blouse and a stretchy poly suiting fabric for the skirt.
