Hi, I used a dress pattern from Project Runway..number 2995 for the basic shape and copied a collar from a top I already own. I didn’t have a zip … all the shops are closed , its Easter weekend , so I had to be brave and attempt button holes! Deep breath and it worked. I’m really pleased. The button holes are a bit wobbly but over all I’m happy.
cotton from Fabric Land at £3.49 a metre… a real bargain
