I decide to " try out " a coat pattern so made it 3/4 length BUT got carried away as I had a bit of fabric left — then another bit of fabric left , and ended up with this outfit ! P. S. i still have a bit left — a shoulder bag ??
Using a straight skirt pattern I drafted the skirt with godets I also drafted the pattern for the waistcoat.
This is the first time I have made a skirt in this style — next time I shall bring the godets further forward.
Wool herringbone weave fabric bought in the 70’s and completely forgotten about. Price unknown . Lining was 60" wide polyester for £1 per metre !! Skirt fabric 1m. gent’s polyester suiting at £2.99.
