I needed a simple shape to work with my elaborately beaded fabric since you have to remove sequins along seam lines and I didn’t want a zipper. I used the shift pattern from the BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage modern book with a number of modifications.
It was quite a detailed project… you can read more about it here.
