I'm not used to working with non-stretch fabric so I'm quite pleased with how these came out! I never use a pattern so it's always a gamble but I'm pretty happy with these. I just cut out the general bodice shape, added bust darts, and did a gathered skirt on the blue one and a pleated one on the yellow. Not perfect but my projects never are! They took about 5 hours apiece.



Thank you for looking!

They are both lovely and suit you so well! Great choice of fabric also, very summery!

Thank you everyone!

@MNR;

The bodices are lined but not the skirts. Mostly because I'm lazy Tongue
