Description

It took me a while to bring myself to cutting this fabric, but when I found the perfect pattern in a late 40s Home Journal it had to be done. It’s has a sweet bow attached at the collar and fastens with pearl buttons down the front. As the fabric wasn’t very think, normal buttonholes seemed too weak, so I finished it off with bound buttonholes instead

    It’s lovely! The soft print of the fabric, and the strong dresspattern,…what a good combination!

    I love the bow neckline—so pretty! And the fabric is a perfect match for the style. :)
