I haven’t forgotten Me Made June. I’ve been sticking to my pledge – just not recording my outfits (lots of repeats – if not the same garment, the same pattern).
I’ve actually finished something new & worn it on Day 29. It started as this:
And finished as this:
I spotted the skirt through the open door of a charity shop. It’s a Liberty print from the ’80s or ’90s. The fabric is cotton lawn & very fine. The skirt wasn’t my sort of thing but there was lots of lovely fabric in it.
I cut off the waistband, undid the hem & seams and washed and ironed it.
The tunic is made from two rectangles & tucks make it the right size & shape.
I used a plate to get the front neckline shape & the button placket is just a cut in the front as far as the waist & then turned back on each side. The buttons came from an old blouse long since recycled.
No pattern required.
