Scarlett O’Hara

Posted on: 17 June, 06

The blouse is Simplicity 5060, with minor fitting adjustments.  This is a great pattern that I plan use again.  The fabric is a leftover from the window treatments in my first house.  It felt good to use that fabric because I have been dragging it around for over 14 years.

The skirt is from the premier issue of Ottobre Woman.  The pattern called for two layers of tiers, but I felt that much fabric would be overwhelming on my small frame.  I love the way the yoked waist treatment fits me.  Once again, I love Ottobre patterns.  The fabric is a simple tone on tone cotton that I inherited from a friend.  It was purchased to be, you guessed it, window treatments.  Here is a photo of how nicely the waistband sits.  It is very comfortable to wear.
