I used a classic tailored skirt block and added a panel of ruffles. The shirt is recycled silk and bow ties.

Material Notes

Wool blend. Would have been nice in a slightly stretchy fabric, but this was what I had lying around:-)

    That’s exactly the skirt i’ve got lined up (in purple stretch suede) for myself. Very cute. Like the blouse.

      Hi Wendy, sorry, I meant I have the same skirt…not shirt…haha. I got my skirt from Sears (a chain department store in the U.S.) less than a year ago. Mine is made with charcoal gray stretchy fabric. It’s really fun to to wear. Yours is better because it’s handmade and tailored to fit you. Very nice job

      I guessed you meant skirt lol. I do think stretchy fabric would be better. – And thanks:-)

    The detailing on the shirt is beautiful too! Cute idea to use bow ties.
