I’ve been loving 1950’s hostess sets for years – skirts over pants look so elegant and comfortable!
During Spoonflower’s last sale I nabbed some of this hawaiian fish design I’ve been eyeing off for ages and realised it would be perfect for making my hostess-set dreams come true. (The fabric I chose was the organic cotton sateen btw).
- The shoulders were extended out
- Changed the mandarin collar slightly by making the edges curved
- Changed the front from seamed, to front closure.
The skirt was self drafted (just a gathered skirt really), with a simple press stud closure. The pants are my favourite Gertie pattern, Butterick 5895 made in red cotton stretch sateen.
The frog closures are from Etsy, hair flower from Hawaii, and the gold wedges are Jamie, from Bait.
Overall, I’m really happy with how this outfit turned out and I can’t wait to get my hands on some more of this fabric!
