Make My Week # 33 Full Petticoat and Circle Skirt

This was supposed to me on Saturday night.

Are you feeling the Sandra Dee?

I made the skirt from a costume pattern and shortened it a lot  – just because I am doing the 50s I don’t forget to work my best lengths. I think I’ll probably wear the skirt in summer too without the petticoat – probably!

And this is the underskirt I made entirely from my stash (which is why the tulle is different colours). I took photos as I went if anyone wants a tutorial – you know it’s a gap in your wardrobe!

Pretty pleased with my efforts actually!
