A month or so ago I saw this pattern in Bust Magazine. I’ve never sewn using a pattern, I’ve been into reconstructed clothing instead but I recently decided to try my hand at using patterns. This one requires you to make the pattern yourself and it was pretty easy… I mean that said coming from a beginner.
The point is that this is my first pattern project ever and I think I did alright.
The flowery fabric was just something I found at a thrift store, I used it just in case it turned out badly.
I can’t find the magazine instructions but I’m pretty sure I used 2 yards of sweatshirt material and maybe a yard of the flowery fabric + an 18 inch zipper.
