Description

This is Burda 7949, view B, made with a printed Japanese cotton. It has a high collar fastened with a pearl button and hand made thread loop. The raw edges are finished as bound seams. I’ve added the Hong Kong binding tag to this just to point out the difference between the two – Hong Kong binding is not as bulky.

Material Notes

The material comes from Tessutis in Sydney, although for the life of me I can’t remember the name of it!
