This is my version of the ‘Odette’ box-cut top.
The fabric is a heavy polyester that I rescued from old curtains at a thrift shop!!! (It would be more glamorous to keep the source for myself, but I’m happy to do – and promote – some recycling). It turns out the fabric was perfect for this design and (despite the sourcing) it looks quite refined!
The pattern and instructions were nicely presented, making the whole process a lot easier.
Thank you www.fine-motor-skills.blogspot.ca for posting this pattern at no cost – it motivates beginner seamstresses like me!
