This is my first version of Vogue 1247 (I love it so much the second version is already cut out!). I had some problems with the waistband instructions but it all came together in the end, with a little help from a friend. I’m really pleased with how it turned out. I added a bit to the length of the pattern, sorry I can’t remember how much though, maybe a few inches?
Some kind of cotton with a crossweave, bought from The Cloth House, London.
