Thrifted cotton fabric, thrifted bias tape, buttons
What was your inspiration?
I've had this fabric for a while, but it was not a lot and it was cut up in weird ways. So, other patterns or tutorials I've tired to use didn't work out. However, I've made this pattern before and liked it.. So, I decided I will make it work. I had to put a seam down the bottom back panel rather than cutting on the fold, but it worked out.
What are you most proud of?
I'm glad I managed to get all the pieces cut out of the fabric.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I recommend this pattern. It runs big, so watch out for that, but it's a good pattern and a nice addition to any wardrobe.
