Started with the Franzi pattern but didn’t have long enuf fabrics so I shortened it, took several inches out of the back, skipped the pockets and back tie/buckle, and took out 1 of the two side panels on each side— didn’t realize the shapes would matter so I had to fix that half way thru. Improvised the bust seams at the last minute when I realized I forgot to draw them. The seams are kind of messy (the red was so hard to keep under control!) but I am nonetheless very happy with it! Only my second attempt sewing clothing! ^.^*
In the third image one of the edges is curling up so it looks uneven but I promise it’s not. See fourth image. :)
Haven’t decided how to close it. Buttons probably, but the idea of finding the right buttons seems far off right now. So here it is.
More of the $2 mystery fabric I bought from a girl sitting on the sidewalk.
