This is a top I made from Butterwick pattern 5354. The pattern is made for knits, but I made this top from cotton (the pleats look all scruncy in the shirt detail pic cuz I was taking my own picture). The skirt is vintage barkcloth and was formerly a valance in my bedroom (hence the Scarlett O’Hara reference). No pattern on the skirt. I made a wide waist band and I planned to just gather the skirt but the fabric was too thick and stiff. Instead, I made pleats all around. It is lots of fun to wear and mostly fun to say I am wearing my curtains.
