Halifax, United ...
I always like to make up a pattern first time in an inexpensive fabric, so this is made from a thrifted duvet cover. It is a Colette Patterns Hawthorn. I used buttons I had in my stash (which may well have come from my grandmother’s stash), so the total cost of the project was around £3.00 (not counting the pattern, which I won’t as I am sure I will use it many more times). I was not sure when I started that this print would translate into something I actually wanted to wear, but as it turns out I really love it.
The pattern is great – goes together easily, with lovely clear instructions.
But I maybe should have ironed it before taking pictures!
