Yep, saw this on the cover of a magazine, and thought “Pfffh, I can make that”. So I did. And I love it! I’m especially pleased with the way the pleats have made it really puffy and the button closure. The worst bit was sewing round and round the black ribbon, round and round and round…. also I didn’t have quite enough ribbon, so I had to make up the gap with black polyester fabric in strips. But I put it at the back so t wouldn’t e as noticeable.
White cotton twill (only used 1 metre!), black polyester ribbon in varying thicknesses, plastic button, zipper
