The blouse paired with the pencil skirt reminded me of a modern take on a 1940s classic design.
And it's just in time for school. You can have a savvy fall frock to wear while walking down that autumnal campus sidewalk. I think this dress will be GREAT for this time of year as summer dresses tend to be more flowy and romantic.
So go get your notions together! It looks like this one will need 6-8 buttons, a long zipper for the back, somewhere around 18" (it doesn't have to be exactly 18" but close to), and if you are making a stiff belt like the one in the middle I recommend buying heavy iron on interfacing, about a half yard of it.
I haven't looked at the yardage yet for the patterns but I will give you that information tomorrow. I'll be posting it to my followers so it doesn't clutter up the front page. Please follow this blog for those updates.
And since the giveaway was scheduled for yesterday, look for a Tuesday Technique later today.
