Vogue 2960 – 2nd toile with the skirt attached.

Thanks to all those fantastic people that left messages and drawings.  I knew you’d be able to help me!

I shortened the waist by half an inch and put a dart in the back piece like so (I traced my pattern piece onto thick interfacing – its so easy to make alterations to!)

and then I sewed it up and put the skirt on this time.   Ran out of bedspread material so hacked into some poly cotton from my stash.

I love the lay of the skirt.  The pleats are too perfect for words!

So unless anyone has any further comments – I think its time to get cutting on my fashion fabric!

Thanks again, you were awesome.

The back is most wonderful I think!
