Description

For the Frock by Friday from May ( Grosgrain ), I chose cute beige fabric that has sky blue embroidered flowers on its bottom.

This time, it is full of little details and is more intricate than my other projects.

Fabrics
- Thin cotton (beige + blue embroidery)
- Light blue cotton
- Beige lining

How?
- Belt : embroidery AND blue cotton
- Collar: embroidery AND blue cotton
- Button bands: blue cotton
- Sleeves: blue cotton too

And
With a lot of patience and help from Grosgrain

Oh, and by the way, the book is the Complete Works of Jane Austen! The perfect thing to read on a summer evening!

Material Notes

- Thin cotton (beige + blue embroidery)
- Light blue cotton

    Great! You are very accomplished seamstress! And accomplished model, too. And I love Jane Austen, hope you can see it from my choice of adjective :)
