Poole, United Ki...
A summery suit with a high waisted skirt and a cropped jacket with 3/4 length sleeves. The skirt was made using the Alexis pattern and the jacket/bolero was made using a 1957 McCalls pattern (from which I also intend to make the dress when I get time!! – see last pic). These are the first items I have taken the time to fully line – and it was well worth the effort!
I’m not sure what it is, but I really like it because it doesn’t seem to crease!!
