I quickly needed a nautical themed outfit for a dinner I was going to and the fastest thing I could think of to make was a shift. This pattern is from my Burda Vintage Sewing Modern book and is great. I added the Peter Pan collar as I thought some extra embellishment was needed however, I made the pattern for the collar myself and I’m not very impressed with it. I really need to watch a tutorial on making Peter Pan collars. Also, this is the second time this has happened to me, the back of the neck gapes out. Not sure where I went wrong there?!?
$3 a metre poly cotton.
