So now I've made my second one, I thought I'd better rave about my new favourite pattern. It is going down in history as the most expensive pattern I've ever bought, but I already realize the quality and expertise behind it!
WORTH. EVERY. PENNY!
So, what's so good about it?
Super easy placket.
Easy gathering (I used my shirring elastic again)
Sizing is perfect- I made an XL with no adjustments at all.
I used this crinkle fabric from the stash for the first one; the only trouble was pressing
the seams and making sure I didn't iron out the crinkles!
The second one is in $4 a metre Spotlight cotton; I used about 1.2m, a bit of a bargain!
I love the spots! I didn't try them on, but will try and snap some of me wearing it- they'll high on rotation in my work wardrobe. I've worn the first one and got a compliment straight away!
