|Spring Frock Fabric|
Pattern? Sort of. I've got *half* a pattern. I'm planning on using a Butterick that I've used before with abysmal results and hoping for a better end product. My only problem is the skirt pattern. I want a drop-waist pattern so that I can make the waist yoke out of the pink and have a crinoline attached underneath. So far though, I'm having no luck at all on Etsy. My plan is to have a skinny belt in pink as well.

And while I'm here, I'll introduce myself. My name is Nina Suluh (pronounced like Sulu from Star Trek) and I've been sewing for over 3 decades now. Which sounds like a lot, but if you figure that I've been "sewing" since I was 4 years old, then it's not so bad. I started with Barbie clothes and moved to Cabbage Patch dolls and then took a hiatus for a few years. I would dabble occasionally, but never really was able to make garments for me because I lacked real fitting no-how. It wasn't until I was married and had kids for a while that I was able to venture into "grown up" clothes. Kids' clothing is good practice for adult clothing. You can master the art of finishing before moving on to fitting.
