Zlin, Czech Repu...
Fabric for this costume is double sided – light and darker green on wrong and right side. I used darker side for the skirt and lighter green for the jacket.
I made modifications on jacket pattern – I’ve added inseam pockets and prolonged the whole body part. Fastening is with decorative safety pin. Jacket is not lined.
Skirt is a simple A line pattern. Just measured myself and constructed the pattern.
Jacket – pattern 22 from Suuri Käsityö lehti 10/2009 (Finnish handcraft magazine)
Skirt – my own pattern
woo-polyester woven fabric, cotton lining for pockets, safety pin, threads
