Description

From a Style pattern from 1970 pattern, with a few alterations. I bought this fabulous fabric a few years ago, daughter no 1 decided this weekend she needed a “beach wrap” (in this weather??). So out came the stash and this was picked. Naturally there wasn’t quite enough to do the whole hog, so the ruffles were sacrificed, as was the self fabric belt, and a bit of the length. Which is a good thing, as daughter no 1 isn’t the tallest person in the house….

Material Notes

Cotton voile from Rosenberg, satin and grossgrain ribbons for the tie.
Rosenberg is a fabulous family of fabric merchants who do shows all over the UK. Here is their website: http://www.mrosenbergandson.com/index.htm If you are nearby any of their shows, go prepared with lots of carrier bags, and a large wadge of cash!
