Travelers Rest, ...
I thought Jennifer looked like a cute Victorian type top. I really wanted to try it in Charmeuse, but knew that was probably out of my skill level. However, when I found polyester Charmeuse at Wal-Mart for $1 a yard I figured I’d give it a try! On the plus side of this project I got to learn to use my old Singer’s edge stitcher. It turned out better than I had hoped though it’s a little tight in the hips.
