So this is my first completed project. I made this as a gift for my sister. I have never sewn anything really before.. haha
It was challenging!!
with the advice of katensew I made a corset and everything as separates. I wanted to create a jacket but didn’t have time..
This isn’t perfect nor how I dreamed it would be but it was a great learning experience haha (especially trying to create it to her measurements without her being here! :P
I used a pattern for the skirt from Simplicity and modified it.. I also found instructions online on how to make the petticoat.
Pattern of the Week
The oversized shape has a cool bell shaped silhouette with a wide body and fitted sleeves
