Port Au Prince, ...
Take Manhattan from the Twinkle Sews book in size 0. I actually did it again in an african print for a friend and I added 2" on the back center seam (4" in total) and redrafted the collar (I can’t explain myself why it does not fit) because my first version is a bit tight in the underarm area.
On the construction side, I did french seams everywhere as I did not line it except for the collar/neckline seam on which I sewed bias tape.
Very soft cotton (loooove it) !
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
