Australian Home Journal Pattern 7052 – Teenage Suit. The front pattern pieces for the tops in view A, C and D were missing from the envelope, along with the instructions, luckily for me I only wanted view B and the top is so simple it was easy to figure out. Pattern altered to fit 40" bust.
I’m not happy with the darts, they’re somewhat crooked and if I make it again they won’t be nearly so long.
Main fabric – cotton from stash
Trim – fat 1/4 from stash
Buttons – vintage from my mum’s stash!
