First, the skirt. The pattern is McCall's 5523.
It looks fairly plain from the front.
But, on the back, there's a fish tail.
I decided not to use the waist facings but used some spotty bias binding instead. It's like a wee secret that only Joanna will know! :o)
The blouse is a pussy bow blouse using this pattern.
The bow doesn't show up too well in the photo but it's there - honest!
Today I was back to sewing for me. I always knew I wanted to make another Lady Skater Dress like the one I made here.
I cut the dress out this morning and sewed it up this afternoon. It really is a speedy sew!
And a closer look at the spots - cream on navy blue. I love it!
