Description

I had this fabric in my stash for a LONG time. I knew I wanted to use it with this vintage butterick pattern. I grabbed a yard of seersucker to make my own bow and bias tape. I was out of white zippers, so I grabbed a red metal zipper from my stash and installed it as a visible zipper for a nice patriotic color scheme. I added a vintage pin from my mom’s collection for a nice spark of color on the collar. More at my blog Vintage Bobbin

Material Notes

linen blend, 18" red metal zipper, blue seersucker
