Description

The other weekend I had an urge to make something straight from a pattern. No extreme adjustments, no fraken-pattern, just cutting & sewing. I’d been wanting to make Vogue V1174 from Cynthia Steffe for quite some time. So I did. I decided to use this brightly printed cotton sateen that I got on sale at the end of last summer. I lined it with a silk cotton blend I’ve had in my stash for about a year or so.

I ended up having to take in the waist a little & change the overbust seam line on the bodice foundation.
