Subversive Femme

Finished Object : Butterick 7952 (wearable muslin)

Hmmm. It does kinda look like the pattern below upper left.
I think I need a more poofy petticoat though.
Fabric:  $1 a meter pink cotton with red cherries on it (from Spotlight). Espadrilles from Rubi Shoes.
This was supposed to test my re-sizing of the pattern (28 inch waist to 33 inch), and success! The skirt itself has in inverted pleat in the front centre and back centre, and a side lapped zipper.
The only mods I made were to shorten the skirt by a couple of inches, and to add a pocket with ric-rac to the front (pockets! yay!). I also lined the skirt with white poplin as the fabric was quite see-through, the added bonus was more body to the skirt so its wearable without a petticoat.
This pattern is super, super easy. I’m pretty sure it must have been released in the US under a different pattern number, but i’m yet to come across it.
Terrible close up of the pockets.
I’m really temped to make Sencha in a white cotton, and make the matching jacket from this pattern – although it might be cherry over-kill!
