I knew I loved the Susan yoke as soon as I saw it. Didn’t dig the unfitted waistline, though. So after altering the pattern and making a blouse in subtle green chiffon, i knew there had to be a dress!
I had bought so much fabric on my last shopping spree and this project was a good way to “burn” some of it :D
The chiffon is pretty sheer, so I still have to make/organize a slip for underneath, but I don’t have matching jersey and I don’t really want to go fabric shopping AGAIN still have about 60-80% from said shopping spree, argh!
I think it looks pretty flapper-esque when I wear the sash on my hip :D After the Boheme Sauvage Soiree, I’m all <3 for 20ies-40ies clothing :D
The instructions are now up, so you can make your own dress, too!
navy satin and chiffon, cotton interlining for the yoke, vintage fabric for the yoke lining
