This fabric, a cotton stretch sateen print, was kind of expensive — more money than I normally spend on fabric. I wanted to make just the right project with it, and get all the details done perfectly. Sometimes, if you've spent quite a while sewing something, it's very tempting to look at the finishing work, like closures and hems, as the downward slide in the project. But previous experience with this sort of fabric told me that I'd really need to rethink my approach. Here's what I came up with.

Technique Materials
