I haven’t uploaded anything in a while so I have quite a lot to photograph but this project was made last Friday. I made it from a late 1960s Butterick pattern (5448) which I had been searching for the perfect fabric for a couple of months.
Medium weight cotton with a herringbone weave, nothing special but the perfect colour. Tacky gold buttons that I also spent ages looking for. Silk that, if I remember correctly, is by Karen Walker.
