This particular pattern says "average" for the sewing skills, but I think it's a little more advanced. If I make it again, I think I'll use a very light cotton, like a Liberty, with a soft hand. There are so many gathers in the skirt that even a quilting cotton is a bit heavy.
This is from the 1956-57 Original Design, and I believe Vogue still has it, although it's a clearance pattern at this point:
Speaking of patterns, I'm still organizing. Just when I thought I was done -- I ran across the 40+ that I got at our local Salvation Army. Sign.
Back to it! I have sewing to do! : )
