Loads of cute details to play with here! I rather fancy using this pattern as the basis for a refashioned man’s shirt. But I bet it could be squeezed out of less than a yard of fabric – what a stashbuster it could be!
The skirt is a similar bell-shape to the Kelly, but without all those pesky buttonholes. Great to define a waist / disguise a pouting tummy / give shape to a flat bottom.
In other words, my kind of skirt!
This dress is very youthful.. I imagine it made up in a plethora of flowing viscose prints, or silk if you are so-inclined. Ooh – Libery Tana lawn!
But it’s probably not for me. I would worry too much about that flippy short skirt in the wind. I really need to move somewhere with less gales!
I see that some of the fabrics used in the samples are available to buy online, so you can recreate the original -that’s a really good selling point for those of us who struggle to make wise fabric choices.
And they come in English too!
