High waisted Sailor Skirt/Jumper with Kangaroo Pocket
Phew...that's a mouth full. I've had this seer sucker fabric for a year now I finally made something out of it last week. I originally bought this fabric to make a skirt with one row of buttons up the middle. I changed my idea a little bit and made it more sailor influenced skirt and I added detachable suspenders to make it into a jumper and a kangaroo pocket because I love pockets, they are very useful.
Above I'm wearing a vintage silk blouse from Sears Roebuck that was missing 2 of its 4 buttons so I removed the two buttons and turned them into stud earrings (which I'm wearing) and I replaced them with 4 new plastic pink/orange/yellow buttons.
Opened and exposing the kangaroo pocket.
Showing removable suspenders.
