I took the wrap shirt pattern featured a few months ago and added a pencil skirt bottom to make it a close-fitting dress with a 1940s flavour. It was made out of printed knit lycra (top) and stretch corduroy (bottom). The seams are all french seams to give vertical lines and the bottom is hemmed with a corduroy ruffle.
