A variation of See & Sew 5469 I made from beautiful retro print patchwork fabric. Very fun to twirl in!
I omitted the cap sleeves and made the skirt out of the remaining fabric because I was about a metre short. This worked out well, because the fabric is quite heavy (as all good patchwork fabrics should be) and wouldn’t have sat quite as nicely if it were gathered as heavily as the pattern suggested. This is a great project for beginners, very quick and easy (apart from the many, many buttonholes, which my mum did because I ran out of time and had to go back to uni). I’m planning on making one with the sleeves in a soft blue fabric with black buttons :D
