London, United K...
A pattern originally from 1946, I’ve had this a while and never known what to do with it. I was a little bit scared too, as a few people rated this as quite difficult.
I fell in love with some really nice blue and burgundy striped handwoven cotton on Goldhawk Road, and didn’t look back. I am very pleased with the outcome, and look forward to wearing this when it’s a bit warmer here.
It’s fully lined, which is always nice, and was fairly easy to do, although a little bit time consuming. The instructions were really good, and I didn’t struggle to understand anything on it (usually I have a moment with most vintage patterns). The details are nice, like the front skirt panel, and the little square neckline. The fit is a bit different than I’m used to, but I think I like it.
p.s. Please excuse my tatty slippers.
Handwoven cotton, (probably polyester) satin lining, old zip and some little press studs.
