I purchased this beet (or radish!) printed fabric from the 1940s on Etsy several months back, and saved it until I found the perfect pattern for it. Is this it? Doesn’t matter now, I’ve already made it!
I subbed a little loop-and-button for the ties. The button is a little cluster of beets, also from the ’40s! Sew darling.
The pattern I used is from the ’70s, Simplicity 8262, which I am selling in my Etsy shop. I had a little trouble getting the v-cut neck to keep a good point once I flipped the facing toward the inside. Does anyone have any tips for that? Fusible interfacing, maybe?
