Description

I based this outfit on an old 1980s dress pattern (Style 1002). I modified the original pattern quite a lot: changed the dress into a matching skirt and top, used buttons instead of a zip and a fitted skirt instead of a gathered one. I have worn the top and skirt seperately but unfortunately I’m still waiting for the right occassion to wear them together as a ‘dress’.

    This is absolutely stunning! I love how you’ve used the edging of the fabric as a repeat decorative motif; this is a great idea. Did the fabric have a double decorative edge?

      Many thanks for your comments. The fabric had a single border so when I made the skirt I actually made ‘two’ skirts; one shorter that the other to create the double edge.
