Description

This is Burfda magazine 6/2009 pattern 108, modified to make the neckline flat against the collarbone /shoulders / back and with sleeves shortened. There are pleats all around the neckline and a band around the hips. I also sewed bias binding over all seam edges to stop the metallic edges feeling scratchy. I made this for my mu last year from an interesting crumply metallic yellow material I found on sale…

Material Notes

Not sure – could be a silk taffeta with metallic thread
