Fargo, North Dak...






My own design-I used flat pattern design from a basic sloper. It has a full circle skirt with pockets, a midriff yoke, a sweetheart neckline, and front darts that meet in the center front. It is lined with self-fabric in the bodice and the skirt has an A-line slip underneath. Other details: hidden zipper and lingerie loops.

Material Notes

Teal cotton/spandex sateen, waist yoke has navy blue stipple stitching

    Thank you so much for the nice comments! I could try to make a how-to for it, are you interested in the bodice, the skirt, or both?
