Q&A with RunningAmuck

Naddles87 asked:
I absolutely love this! Which pattern did you use? I have a retro vogue I plan to do up using a similar print fabric (featuring a very buff red Indian). Can't resist over the top fabric prints, such fun!
RunningAmuck answered:
the skirt i drafted myself. just a basic rectangle with pleats (box pleat at the center and sides). the bodice i modified from new look 6824.
Davesmom asked:
