GOD, am I relieved. This gorgeous thing has been lingering in my shelves for years now!

It’s a found vintage silk crpe bedsheet and some ivory silk organza adorned with lovely vintage mother of pearl teardrop buttons.

I will now sit down and just breathe ≈_≈°

    This is the best rendition of the pattern I have seen. Great job. I have had projects that sit for years as well. In fact I have one that has not left undone for over 15 years. Great job, and you are right it is gorgeous!
