Liz in "toile de Jouy"

Added Jan 11, 2008

Umeå, Sweden






Alterations: I took two cm on each side seam, inkluding sleave openings. Not sure wheter I should have moved the princess seams also.
I didn’t have enough black buttons, so I tried red – not sure I will keep it that way.

Material Notes

Cotton print with toile de Jouy-style pattern.

    That fabric is brilliant! I’m going to try this in a Japanese double-gauze. Will keep you posted…

    I love that fabric! I think the fit looks good. As far as I can see in the pictures, the princess seams seem to be in the right place.
