2nd Go with JJ. This is the most painless pattern I’ve ever dealt with. I mean ZERO tears. AND it FITS. God where have I been!? I could have made a million JJs by now and be happy forever.
Also I tried making french seams, which was a success.
I have no idea what this fabric is. It came from Value Village. It was not, however, a curtain or tablecloth. Not that there’s anything wrong with making clothes out of linens! :-)
Buttons I got from an antique shop.
