The skirt was one of my first projects that I made when I got into clothes sewing, but the waistband was very fussy. I cut off the waistband, added a lining and made a new waistband with 2 inch elastic.
The top is an old favourite that was definitely showing signs of wear, plus my arms were a lot smaller when I bought it about 15 years ago, I added a large ruffle and think I’ve got a few more years yet for this old darlin’!
2 inch elastic for the waistband and cotton voile for the lining of the skirt.
The ruffle is made of cotton jersey.
