Description

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??

Material Notes

satin for the blouse and a stretchy poly suiting fabric for the skirt.

    I’ve been trying to perfect a pencil skirt pattern like this for a while now. (I could break down and download one but I want to make things hard) The skirt is the perfect length and goes with the blouse nicely. Great job.

      Thanks a lot… yeah, sometimes I think I’m gonna do it myself, but sometimes you just want something quick and satisfying….

      You should really try it. It’s easy and make sure you yo use stretch fabric… good luck!
