Description

I’ve had this yellow daisy print pattern fabric in my fabric drawer for over a year and I finally got around to using it.

I used the Contour Bust Pattern, but instead of using binding round the edge I cut a second front top pattern piece and used it as interfacing. I also attached tie back straps, and made a very simple pleated skirt.

Material Notes

100% medium weight cotton – something with movement, but enough weight to hold the bust shape

Difficulty

Intermediate
