    100_2983_listing

    After my really long and involved Denim DuBarry, I wanted to make something very short and sweet. This top took all of an hour. It’s self-drafted, has no darts at all, just two pieces which are ide…

    This project was definitely a lot of effort! It’s a DuBarry coat dress in denim, and works equally well as a coat. The pattern is from the early 1940s, but the shortened hem and dark wash denim tak…
