    Oh wow is this the infamous Butterick B4790 pattern? I am about to attempt this one myself:

    I LOVE the colours and fabrics you have used – so creative and colourful! It really looks fabulous and very original. I’m very inspired.

    I had so much trouble deciding what fabric to use for it especially with the 2 fabric option – I was just walking around and around and around the fabric store til I was cross eyed! So I’ve decided to try it in just one black with white polka dot fabric and red bias binding.
