HSF 2015 - Challenge #2 - Blue

The Challenge: #2 Blue
Fabric: Polycotton
Pattern: Used Butterick pattern.
Year: 1930s-40s
Notions: elastic, ribbon, rikrack
How historically accurate is it? Well I hope it is accurate as I can get it.
Hours to complete: Took me two days but then I handsewed some of it. If I'd used the machine it would have been done in a day.
First worn: 15/1/15 for photo's.
Total cost: £5 Because I only had to buy the fabric everything else was gifted to me.

Couldn't resist a little nod to Snow White. The skirt is one I made in 2012! Can't belive its fits me again now...I nearly took it to the charity shop.
