In my last post I said I'd show you what that wearable muslin skirt (from Vogue 1915, OOP) looked like on, so here you are:
If you're wondering, it's not that my neck comes out to the side for a dance or something, it's that the top has squirmed off to the side.
The shadows are tricky too, aren't they - something to do with the time of day I believe.
Here on the left is proof of at least one functioning pocket - oh wait, make that two functioning pockets - very handy.
You may be wondering about the top too...
... I wondered about the hemline when I saw this photo!
Evidently the top is from the late 1980s - same era as the skirt, which is why it kind of matches even though yes, it is mostly navy blue whereas the skirt is black. I cut this top out ooooh about 20 years ago (woah!) and then left it because it looked too boring. It was a good low-mojo kind of project - the sewing was much easier than expected and I had pretty low expectations and no need to finish the thing if indeed it was too boring.
PS That hemline is straight. The top is not hanging straight. Nothing to worry about.
