Mode Royal Pattern

I have completed the vintage skirts, a mode royal pattern, except for some hand sewing around the waist band and sewing on the buttons. The indian print skirt has vintage glass buttons and I have yet to find any purple buttons for the stripped skirt. Of all my buttons I do not have any purple.

Two Artisans Sisters have a link on their artfire studio that took me to a vintage pattern site. While there I learned more about vintage patterns, other than what I like, and found out about Mode Royal Patterns. Yes, the directions are difficult to follow. It took me over 20 minutes just to figure out from the drawing that I was suppose to turn the facing and side panel inside out, before attaching to front of skirt. A person would think that they would say that in the directions.

No bolero jacket for these skirts, don't have enough fabric. One last thing, the size is 14, but that means for a 27" waist. I hemmed them just below the knee, but I'm thinking they would look more modern just above the knee. I'll post pictures soon. I did a photo shoot today but mostly for my collectables, vintage hats and shoes I'll be posting on my etsy site.
