This was just meant to be a trial dress before I cut into some really lovely fabric. But Mr Ooobop worked his magic behind the lens and turned it into something special!
I self-drafted the pattern myself. A second attempt following my retro top. It’s still not perfect but I’m getting warmer!
I simply drafted a pencil skirt to add to the self-drafted bodice. I changed the neckline to a more 40s style too.
More detail over at ooobop!
heavy-weight cotton stretch, I think!
