This looked like something fun to make, especially the pleat, which is the show piece of this pattern. However I have busy hair that always needs dressing down, so I made the top with a plain satin strip instead. I struggled with my ancient zip, that was too long and chunky, and from the pic of the back, you can see I need to add a hook and eye to finish the closure. Wont try to take the photo again though, it was me holding the camera and that it came out at all is a fluke. A big thank-you to IchhigoGirl for making the pattern available.
cotton print, satin, old zipper from my stash.
