1950s

Butterick 7956, circa 1956

November 16, 2010

I’ve been meaning for the last 8 years to make this outfit, and i’m getting there slowly.

This is really just a wearable muslin of the skirt, but it looks really cute on! The skirt has front and back inverted pleats for fullness (which IMHO I think is more flattering for a bigger girl).
The fabric was $1 a meter, and its pink with red cherries. I added a pocket with ric-rac trim too, cos who doesnt need pockets? I can’t wait to wear it soon (its nearly summer down here in Australia).
