Now that we have our first summer show up and running, I get to concentrate on the second summer show – which goes into first dress rehearsal tomorrow! Yikes!
The same actress who wore this dress will be in play #2, in a smaller role. She’s playing a tightly-wound British secretary – I envisioned her in a tweedy skirt and white blouse. The problem: my actress is allergic to wool!
I found this fabric at JoAnn’s – 100% acrylic, but it “reads” as wool. I needed to turn the skirt around fast, and didn’t have time to futz around with toiles or new patterns. So – I grabbed the skirt pattern from McCall’s 7345, and made it into a standalone skirt. It worked like a charm!
I bet the top would make a super cute blouse, too…. Hmmm…..
