Original design by me, sewn in 2013.
Max’s mom gave me this fabric for Christmas along with the little yellow buttons. I struggled for a bit what to do with it. I wanted to do this amazing vintage fabric justice so it took me nearly 4 months to decide on a design, but I finally did!
The pattern work was relatively easy and I actually made all my patterns perfectly, including a placket with facing which I don’t ever recall doing before. If I have, it was in college and I don’t remember much from college.
And it’s the most beautiful thing I have made so far!
