This pattern called Port Elizabeth, was my first sewing project and my first pattern one year ago! It´s very easy to sew and you can make many differents versions of it. I used green silk to sew it and black bias binding for finishing the neck. Instead to sew buttons, I used snaps (is this the english term? I don´t know…). Snaps are so easy to put and they give a different touch to the garment.

Silk, bias binding and snaps.
