This material used to be my great grandmother’s shirt-dress (she died two years before I was born). My grandmother kept it in her stash in the basement (a treasure-grove) for nearly 30 years before I found it, brought it home, and made new pieces of clothing from it. I love the material, you can’t seem to find material of that quality nowadays (well, you CAN, but you have to go to Japan first…). I’m glad I have a grandmother who knew better than to throw things with potential away! I made the pattern from my own basic pattern.
