Swinging back to the '50s!

For some time now I have been longing to make a 1950s circle skirt. A couple of weeks ago, I had two excuses: my friend's 21st and £15 off voucher at my local haberdashers!

Flicking through the pattern books in the shop, I came across the perfect pattern - Simplicity 5403. Just like it's name, it is simple to use and very quick to put together so I wholly recommend it! The only alterations I had to make was the hem - it was too long for my liking and so I took it up 5".

The fabric I used for it was a lovely blue cotton with little white spots. I will upload a photo of my entire outfit after the weekend, but here it is so far:
