I found this pattern in a second hand shop in my home town for only 50 cents. Considering the price of brand new patterns I was very happy with my find. I consider myself an O.K sewer, maybe an advanced beginner, and I have tackled a lot of different patterns. This pattern had me beat though. It took a couple of days and lots of help from my Mum to sort out the pleats and the layered skirt but we got there in the end. Notice, however, that I am including no photos of the back view. After two attempts at getting the back hems to match up I gave up and decided near enough was good enough.
