I fell in love with the flowing photo on this envelope packet a few years back. I have had this pattern which seems like forever and finally I cut it, it sat for about 2 weeks, as I searched my stash for the perfect fabric. I shop my stash a lot, it’s a large stash and I am trying my best to sew it down. So far it’s working. I think because it doesn’t all fit in my sewing space anymore.
I did have to adjust the bodice, so that there wouldn’t be any accidents of anything falling out the front. Overall I love the outcome. I did not add the shoulder ties or the back neck tie. It would have been easy to add bought, but it was a personal choice for me.
