Description

I made this outfit for a friend who opens a cafeteria soon. So this will be her working outfit. It cosists of blouse, skirt and underskirt.
The skirt pattern is from Burda 6/2001, the blouse is based on the “Dress with a Peter Pan collar and pintucks” http://www.burdastyle.com/pattern_store/patterns/102011-dress-with-peter-pan-collar-and-pin-tucks ‘, but I didn’t do the pintucks nor the collar and made a yoke.

Material Notes

cotton batiste

      Thank you so much, Reka!
      I made the blouse and skirt few years ago and don’t remember exactly how I modified the original pattern. What I remember is that I first did the “pleates” in the front using double needle. Then I hand-draw the yoke. I also made the sleeve curve higher because I wanted to add a bit gathering to the sleeve top.

    I know the skirt pattern is not available online, but i love it so. could some one by chance direct me to a skirt of similar style, or make suggestions for drafting my own pattern. I would really appreciate any and all help with this.This skirt would be so perfect for a costume i am doing for a masked ball. Thanks in advance Jessica

      Hi! I am sorry for answering so late. But basically you can take a pencil skirt pattern, make a seam to the centre front and back and flare all the four pattern pieces above the knees.

      The skirt is from Burda 6/2001, so it is an oldie. They don’t have patterns so old in the web unfortunately…
