I bought this strawberry fabric for $5 a few years ago, and had it sitting in my stash. It wasn’t a big piece, and quite thin fabric (not much more than cheesecloth thickness), so not the easiest to find a use for. Then, when I bought some vintage fabric online, and received this blue and white striped seersucker as a bonus gift. It was an even tinier piece, but it is close to matching the Strawberry stripe fabric, so I decided I’d use these together.
I don’t seem to have many patterns for tops, so this was self-drafted. Because the Strawberry fabric is so thin I needed to do the double layering, so I decided to use that need as the basis for having the seersucker stripe showing from underneath and as a hem at the bottom. The edging is yellow and white gingham bias binding that I found in a junk shop earlier this year, and brings out the yellow (sour? unripe?) Strawberries.
