Navy Style Pin up Attire



Used up the quality wool I had in the closet, as well as the anchor buttons and buckram I had :P
9 hours for the jacket (because I had made the pattern before) And 5-6 hours for the skirt, made from scratch.
Wholly relied on my skills in pattern making and drafting, made without fitting them before finishing and the fit is perfect - even with getting the darts right without fitting (my hips being 40cm bigger than waist so the darts are not exactly as the ones suggested for regular bodies) .

Should start taking pride in my work instead of putting myself down all the time.

Made to order, available at etsy: http://www.etsy.com/listing/78282045/navy-uniform-style-jacket-made-to-order

l'anglaise


Well, finally "got rid of" of the cotton curtain I once found at the second hand store. Made a lovely dress, don't know if it's more 19th century style though than 18th century.
Stomacher made earlier.
