This is the second piece of clothing I have made. I saw the fabric and thought “Why don’t I make something to wear on Christmas day?” This is the result! I did get some ribbon the put around the neckline as in the pattern, but that didn’t work out! I’ve added a press stud instead so it’s a slit rather than a full opening.
Let me know what you think?! I really enjoyed making it – this dressmaking lark is addictive!
Hmm, cotton I think
