This is an ensemble, a skirt and a blouse that can be worn separately or together (when together, it looks like a dress). I made the skirt with the party skirt how to, but I made pleats instead of gatherings. The blouse is based in the anda pattern, but it is opened, I added a diagonal button row (I’m thinking about changing the colour of the buttons since the row is not noticeable).
Cotton fabric, with a nice pillow fight print.
