Using my grandmothers old bedsheet I made another variation of the Port Elizabeth pattern. I was inspired by a dress I saw in a shop to make the collar high and folded with a button. It can also be unbottoned and the collar will fold itself out over the shoulders. I was just a little too eager to get it finished so it’s just a tiny bit too short but otherwise I like it.
Cotton fabric, plastic button.
