Sewjourn Part 2, tops and skirt....

 Yet another Simplicity 2599, plain with no ruffles or frills.
 And another, this time I added a Peter Pan collar, just at the front.

And a cute pleated skirt.
I used Nicole Mallalieu's A-Line skirt pattern for the yoke, then added pleats and the fake pockets at the front. I really should have ironed it first before taking the photos!
Dresses to come next....
I started my Christmas shopping yesterday, and I think everyone else it Ballarat was doing the same thing.....silly season has well and truly started!

oooh, I saw more of that top voile on Spotty's 'chuck out table' yesterday...but refrained because I already bought some- last year (when it was not on the chuck out table!) which hasn't been used. It looks great sewn up.
