Random Retro Skirt

in 1950s

Are you sitting comfortably….then I’ll begin this story of sucess from the brink of disaster.

Firstly I was planning using a bodice and skirt pattern to make ’50′s’ dress.

But after compleating the bodice and cutting the skirt out I realized there was imperfections in the fabric right on the front of the skirt. DISASTER! I’d have to scrap the skirt and wait till I could get some more fabric.

Or so I thought….

Thinking on my feet I put elastic into the waistband and a pocket to cover the imperfection.

I also did some embroidery on the pocket. I can wear it with a underskirt to give the skirt volume and it will be perfect for a retro dance.
