Wellington, New ...
Made from re-released vintage Vogue V2859, from 1935 (the era of art deco and the Great Gatsby!).
The pattern is very short, so I added a 1.5 inch band around the base of the top. It’s now the perfect length for me to wear with skirts and trousers that sit at the natural waist.

The fabric came from my stash – I don’t know what it is, or where it came from. It’s a lovely petrol-blue shade though, which I really like. It’s got a bit of a sheen to it, and also a slightly slubby texture, both of which work quite well with this pattern (but neither of which you can really see in the photo).
