Damn, when am I going to learn and buy that extra half metre more? Laying up the fabric I realised that I came a bit short on the sleeves (sometimes things are meant to be). Scavenger hunt time for the right contrast colour in my endless pile of leftover fabric, bingo!
The pattern does have pockets, but me being different and wanting more of a 1940’s look, opted for my own draft and voila!
Loving my Bernina particularly for making buttonholes (automatic)..
Fabric from my Japan trip
