Description

Really cheap but lovely cotton fabric from Fabricland…only£3.50 a metre. I used a pattern I’ve used before as it’s so so quick to put together and suits my shape. ( non shape!) . Simplicity 8452 , I think from the 1970s.

Material Notes

Cotton, and cotton lining

Difficulty

Intermediate

      Hi, many thanks. Fabricland is great, but if you see fabric buy it straight away as it sells out so quickly. ( that’s my excuse anyway!)
