This was cut out almost a year ago at a sewing weekend and forgotten about until i discovered it last week in the basket i brought home and obviously never unpacked! An hour of sewing and it’s finished.
I made a few alterations. The pattern should be cut out in one piece so there are no shoulder seams, this takes more fabric so i adjusted it so i didn’t need to buy as much fabric, but i do have shoulder seams which really don’t matter. I didn’t add the casing and drawstring at the hem and i widened the neckline and did a fold over and twin stitch instead of a binding.
I’m really pleased with it, the fabric is perfectly drapey (it feels quite heavy and a little crepe like). I LOVE the colour too, i have a bit of a thing for mustard yellow right now.
