This was my trial run at this pattern before using the nice fabric I got. I made this out of some cotton I had on hand and some silky stuff too :) I did no hemming on this (I HATE HEMMING) I think the trimming looks good :) I used french seams for most of it too. Since this was just going to be a practice run I didn’t have 5 matching buttons on hand, but I did have 3 the same and a pair, so they don’t match but I alternated them to kind of make a pattern with the buttons.
