This was made from an old 60’s sewing pattern that my grandmother gave me some time ago. I never liked it but my daughter, in the picture, simply loved it and begged me to make it for her sorority dance. I guess she knew best. It turned out really cute and she wears it to other events as well.
I used a chocolate brown suiting fabric that had a sheen on one side and matte on the other, I used the sheen side for right side. Other than that it was just thread and a zipper and a few fittings to get it just right.
ME and my daughter for insisting.
