Made using a vintage pattern and some fairly vintage fabric my grandmother gave me. It turned out a little small at first but I let out the darts and seams and it was OK. The sleeves are kimono sleeves – ie the bodice and sleeves are cut in one peice. I think I’m gonna make it again with a full pleated skirt and shorter sleeves in some blue Ikea fabric – its a very adaptable pattern.
My grandmother for giving me the fabric
