I used a Vogue vintage pattern from 1956- number 8830. Fabric is a linen/silk shantung that has a gorgeous sheen, and the collar and cuffs are from a yard of silk I got from Mood. Four inverted pleats on the skirt–I added the belt looks to cinch it in tighter if need be. Fun dress to make, relatively simple. Didn’t make the bolero, I didn’t have enough fabric–this took 4 yards at 60″ wide. Big skirt!
