Southend On Sea,...
I wanted a two piece outfit and this is what I came up with. The skirt is a full round skirt I drafted myself. I added side pockets and an invisible side seam zip. The top is my 40s top with top section going the other way with piping and no opening on the back as I can pull it on. The skirt is a tad to tight at the moment as I only just had enough fabric to make the skirt . the fabric is a blue and white stripe soft cotton sheet and pillow cases. The skirts a bit see through but with my petticoat alls ok and it only cost my £2 to make
