I used Elaine’s ruffle and skirt pattern for this. I used the bodice (originally a ‘70s pattern) and sleeves from my “Coffee Date Blouse.” Invisible side zip, fully lined bodice.
I was wearing make-up so I didn’t crop my head out of the photos this time ;-)
Ridiculously fraying, practically heat-resistant, blue polyester, I think. It was awful – I will never voluntarily use this type of fabric again. This is why I’m glad I have a serger. Fortunately, it was only $3ish/yard on the clearance rack!!
