I like the thought of a 'playsuit' but with a matching detachable skirt. As I'd wear it purely for dancing rather than 'all day' the usual issues I have with play suits and jump suits wouldn't apply.
I've seen a few vintage patterns with this concept of shorts, swimming costume or playsuit with a detachable skirt.
I really like the wearing history sailor girl playsuit pattern. (If I can find a UK stockist I'll buy it) otherwise I'll have to improvise.
I was looking at maybe using a modern pattern like M6533 and drafting a matching skirt. But what kind of skirt? A-line, circle, half circle, pleated or dirndl? What do you think.
I have been keeping back in my stash a nice printed cotton, black with little flowers.
Here is my little sketch.
Decided to use this pattern...
But modify it. Adding darts, sleeves and peterpan collar.
Now deciding on the skirt. A line but button down the side or pleated?
