Added Jul 16, 2011
Recently I puchased a couple of metres of Alexander Henry Tea Leaf. I wanted to make a nice casual frock and used Simplicity 2927. I added in some braid on the front panels and happily matched the pattern on the pockets although I got the pattern upside down on the neck (duh!). Still, it’s nice and will look super with my recently purchased Swedish Hasbeen sandals.
