Description

I made this a while ago from some cream and brown linen I had lying around. I happened to be in love with ruffles at that time and wanted something I could spend a considerable amount of time working on. It’s semi-fitted, with an invisible zip on the back and two darts on each side. I really love the sweet heart neckline and I’m glad I went with that instead of a plain one.

I drew semi-circles on the skirt to which I applied the ruffles. The contrasting fabric makes the pattern stand out. I can’t have imagined making it in another colour.

      Thank you Marlon, :) Truth be told all I had was an image in my head, never knew how the finished result would be like.
