This is based on a pattern from Simplicity, which I pretty much followed other than changing the collar from pointed to rounded and choosing large, Jackie Kennedy type buttons instead of the more expected small plastic variety.
The material is a deep blue cotton from the small town fabric store my mother shopped at as a child. It has a very pretty, understated vine pattern all over that gives it that extra something special.
