I found this cotton in a huge discount fabric shop and immediately fell in love with its vintage style floral print. The pattern is self-drafted and I just love this feminine shape. Whilst the long sleeves and high neckline with lace collar create a very demure look, the fitted bodice and full skirt also gives a “grown up” twist. It was the first time I had sewn in a side invisible zipper and I’m so pleased with the result. It’s such a clean finish.
