I’m working on a 50s secretary style top/skirt combo… here is the top! I will take more photos once the ensemble is complete :) Still debating whether to go with the pencil skirt or a-line.
The project itself wasn’t TOO difficult, though the instructions were a bit confusing (as others have said). I had to make the ties a little shorter simply because I ran out of fabric— but they are still plenty long, and I like them that way. Had a hard time getting the sleeves in, but I think it’s just because I’m fairly new to the whole “adding a sleeve with ease” thing. Still learning! Either way I had fun working on this one and am happy with how it turned out :)
Just a thin cotton!
