New Orleans, Lou...
Made in an inexpensive cotton. The sizing was off because I used french seams instead if the recommended seam allowance. Totally my bad. Thankfully, it perfectly fits a dear friend – and she likes it. I used muslin to make bias tape for the neck and arm holes. I also made the neck hole wider by a couple of inches. It is killing me that I didn’t center the fabric pattern to the center of the garment, but nobody seems to care.
