I just love the look of vintage clothing, so this is an attempt at making some ruffles and lace that look a little vintage, but with a modern feel too.
These are a couple of Violette Field Threads patterns. The blouse is the Madelyn and the skirt is the Vivienne pattern.
The Madelyn is made for knits, but it has a size chart for wovens also. I had to go up quite a few sizes, which made it pretty long, and it was pretty snug at the bottom. I also didn't like the look of the back, so I added room in the back so that it would overlap, rather than just meeting at the center back. I did regular button holes rather than the loops the pattern called for.
I also added another layer of ruffles to the skirt and adjusted the waist band a little.
I also added some wooden buttons. Those really are vintage. Or thrifted, anyway.
Here's the skirt by itself.
And the blouse, complete with lace covered buttons. Those are my favorite part.
