Some kind of old taffeta fabric that i found on clearance.. it hung around the store for years and somehow nobody noticed how beautiful it was! except me.. so i bought it and then used it to whip u something to wear to a gallery show. it was an old McCall’s pattern M4875, now out of print. it wraps around the back first, and then ties around the front.. i didn’t understand how it worked by just looking at the picture, but once you look at the instructions it makes perfect sense..
The top is McCall’s 6164, with the funky sleeves.. the pattern looks great, but i used a crappy fabric for it, so i haven’t worn it a whole lot… you know those action wear cotton knits that only have a mild stretch to them? that’s what it was.. and because it was mostly cotton it ended up fading, so it’s no long black-black… oh well, right? you live and learn….
materials were used.
