A shame that this is only a toile… and not a wearable one at that! I used Vintage Butterick 8043 which is a fabulous pattern… all about the neckline. The fabric was a very cheap shiny synthetic blend, which I bought for the purpose of a toile but was secretly hoping it would work out for a wearable one. But it proved to be too unstable. It tears like paper and little holes started to appear down one side. Never mind! Will definitely be making this up in some better quality fabric next time. All the details and photos over at ooobop!
Special thanks to The House of Pinheiro for encouraging the post and to Mr Ooobop! for taking the photos!
