I love the Port Elisabeth top pattern. I shortened the length and added the detailing at the front. I purchased the fabric at the markets, but had difficulties in finding the fabric that I had in mind for the co-ordinating skirt. I find that this is a constant problem for me. I have great difficulties in finding the perfect material. Do fellow sewers have the same problem? Germany does not have a great selection of fabric and it is not all that affordable either:( so this is a constant challenge for me. But! Thanks to my fellow German sewers I found the right baby blue fabric. I drafted the high waisted skirt…. and i like how it all turned out!
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
