I used Simplicity’s 2922 pattern. I’ve had this pattern in my storage for over two years but pulled it out to try the sleeveless yoke variation. Then I found this pleated fabric at my local fabric store and paired it with leftover apparel lining for the neck yoke. It’s not a perfect match but I’m okay with the contrast.
I was so excited to find a way to showcase the fabric without disturbing the pleats.
The yoke was so easy yet stylish. I don’t know why I never tried it before.
