New York, New Yo...
The blouse has been waiting more than a year to have sleeves attached. Originally I wanted petal sleeves, but now I’m leaning more toward a very short cap.
The reversible skirt was originally constructed with the deep pleat at center front. However, it looks a bit like kind-of clownish shorts when worn like that, so I just wear the skirt off-centered. Next draft I will move the pleat in the pattern.

Skirt constructed of buffalo plaid handkerchief linen, underlined with silk gazar. (Fashion Fabrics Club and a scrap from an internship).
