I loved this pattern as soon as I saw it – but maybe I watch too much Mad Men! It is Butterick 4702 from 1968. It was the white version on the pattern I fell for – the yellow version looks kind of like Lego, don’t you think?!
Made up in a very fine wool (not the easiest to work with – serges like a dream but isn’t keen on the sewing machine so the zip went in on attempt number 2!). The wool is a fabulous brick red colour and hard to photograph (apologies for the quality). UPDATE – grabbed a new photo today which shows the colour much better.
I found the buttons on eBay – original 60s and nice and big – whoop!
The hem is turned with lace – a necessity due to the fabric being so fine.
