This was one of my last year’s hit. I did enjoy sewing this pattern a lot, even if the fabric I chose was kind of slippery. Unfortunately it took a lot of time, and when I had finished it I couldn’t wear anymore as I had lost quite a few pounds, and it just didn’t fit right. So I gave it to my mom and she actually loved it :)
I was quite worried about the pleats but in the end it wasn’t such a big deal.
A very slippery blend fabric!
