Description

The perfect outfit for the Diamond Jubilee street and garden parties.

I have used the same fabric as before, a crepe by John Kaldor.

The dress is based on the flat sleeve and flared skirt version of the Simplicity K2588 Project Runway pattern.

Very easy to make, I would say this is a novice’s project that will offer you a wearable, comfortable dress.

Accessorised with a vintage Selfridges elastic, metal and stone belt.; Jones Bootmaker satin shoes and own military jacket. Hand painted scarf as per previous project and hand made flowers.

All the British Jubilee inspired outfits will be sold for a children’s charity: C.H.A.T. at the Watermead Jubilee celebrations

      Thank you. It is simple, I like simple lines. I think the fabric is busy enough anyway :-)

    I made this dress last year, except with the puff sleeves, but I didn’t even RECOGNIZE this as that same pattern. It’s gorgeous in that bold print and soft drape.

      I checked your sailor dress out, yep, looks different! Th fabric I used is very, very soft, so the pleats will fall freely, I cannot iron them.

      Thank you for the kind words. This pattern was free in Sew magazine. It also has a more revealing variation, i might try that as well. ah, i wish i could keep it!
