Description

Nowadays, I spend most of my time wearing jeans and a t-shirt (changing the t-shirt several times a day after my baby spills food, slobbers etc.). But I needed something for a conference I was invited for, so I made this project.

The blouse is made of white poplin. The pattern comes from a Burda magazine and no alterations were made. The skirt pattern is taken from a Burda Easy Fashion magazine but I made the skirt shorter and added a petticoat with a pleated ruffle and a waistband. The upper skirt is draped on the right side seam (and hand-sewn, but I plan to add snaps that would enable me to wear it either draped, or smooth).

Material Notes

Blouse – white cotton poplin with 3 % elastan
Skirt – plaid cotton blend, cotton satin for the petticoat

Intermediate

    I love the blouse, do you remember which issue it is from? The skirt looks good too, and the entire outfit is great

      I love the blouse too, so crisp and very nice, great fit too. Wish I had that issue :( I’ll add it to my list and ask one of the girls at my sewing club if they have it :)
