This is the set I made for my mother a long time ago (I think more than 10 years ago), when I was still learning on my own mistakes :). The skirt and orange details on the blouse were made from an old dress my mom had, and the blouse was made from the fabric leftovers. The skirt has basic pencil-skirt shape. The blouse has dolman sleeves and button closure on the back. Actually, the blouse pattern was created as an alteration from some dress that had had raglan sleeves – I slmply joined the sloper and the sleeves blocks into one block. The orange details on the blouse were made quite spontaneously – we didn’t have enough flowerish fabric to make the blouse :). The set turned out fine, but now, when I look at it, I can find so many faults :). Though, I find it interesting to see how much I had improved my sewing skills.
