Red Gingham Blouse

Somehowit seemsthat I'm alwaysfocused ondressesandgarments forthe lower body and I'm avoiding blouses and shirts. I have to change that immediately.
This is my new wrap blouse.

 I cut this wrap blouse in the same way as wrap dresses, only shorter.

Red 8 panel skirt

Beautiful wide skirt cut from 8 panels, with hidden zipper and button on the back. Here presented with Dotty Blouse.


Culottes

Image
Women's Culottes = a split or divided skirt or any garment which "hangs like a skirt, but is actually pants". Cyd Charisse wears culottes in the "Silk Stockings" movie.


I found this pattern in one of my older Burda magazines, 6/2001.
Pattern was not exactly what I wanted, only front was cut with pleat and the back was cut as wide leg trousers, without pleat so I made it with both front and rear pleats.





Jabot Dress

Sleeveless, with Petar Pan collar, jabot and A-line skirt. Zipper on the side.
