Description

I’ve been playing around with Vogue 1227 (this is my third or fourth iteration), so at this point each pattern piece has been majorly re-drawn and I swapped the original skirt pattern for a simple gathered rectangle. Still not perfectly happy with everything (maybe strapless next time? maybe I need to learn bra-making?), but I’ve been wearing it a lot!

Material Notes

100% cotton that I got on the cheap @ Joann’s
