London, United K...
I found this fabric in a store in Brighton and bought about four metres of it! Originally I wanted to use it for Butterick B4790 (‘Whirl Away’) but instead made Vogue 8182 View C. I love the pattern, but the skirt was way too big (I have small hips) and so I did a complete fudge job to take in the sides by about 1.5" each side. The zip looks a bit weird but I can live with it. I also machine sewed the hem because I’m completely impatient. It looks a bit crappy but the stitching line isn’t very visible among the loud pattern so I’m happy with that.
The finishing at the top of the zip (in the pattern) was a bit, er, nonexistent, so when I made this again, I hand sewed the lining down to make it a bit neater.
Printed cotton with a bit of stretch (no idea of the actual fabric type!)
