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.
Blouse constructed of chartreuse silk georgette and matching rayon crepe. (Fashion Fabrics Club and vintage, respectively).
Skirt constructed of buffalo plaid handkerchief linen, underlined with silk gazar. (Fashion Fabrics Club and a scrap from an internship).
