Breaking Silence with Cynthia Rowley...Simplicity 1873

Gradually coming out of my shell................This little number was made last weekend and worn to work yesterday. The fabric has been in my stash for God knows when, it's some kind of soft Chinese cotton ... can't remember where I got it from, but perfect for this pattern.....







I made these few alterations to the pattern:
1. Lengthened the bodies by 1"
2. Lengthened the skirt by 3"

More to follow!!!!.
