Wellington, New ...
We’re approaching the end of our summer in the southern hemisphere, but I thought I’d make the most of what’s left to make and wear pretty summer frocks. This one is made from a vintage pattern, the View A to be precise. I got it off Trademe and tested out in mint green dupion silk (more on that later!).
The only real change I made to the pattern in the end was to replace the zipper opening with a facing and button closure, and I took some fullness out of the skirt – not by choice, I just ran out of fabric! Don’t you hate it what that happens?
Blogged about it here:
White poly-cotton netting with embroidered flowers, cotton facings, assorted white plastic buttons.
