    The Elisalex pattern is such a great pattern and seems to suit such a huge variety of fabrics. I think your fabric looks beautiful made up into this pattern. Love it!!!!

      Thank you, I was a bit nervous about that since I added a vent, but it’s still very round, which is a fact I love about this pattern!
