Now that it is all said and done, I am again kicking myself for not looking at the pattern sizing before cutting.
How can you not love this material?!? Perfect colors, perfect flora patterns, perfect LINEN!
In case you were wondering, my second zipper attempt was not as traumatic as the first. After a helpful suggestion from my sister to hand baste the zipper on before machine sewing (duh! why had I forgot that step?), the zipper really went on like a breeze. (Have I mentioned lately how much I adore my new sewing machine?)
And then to keep the seams from fraying I decided to add red bias tape to the inside seams...I absolutely LOVE hidden details like this.
Is it wrong to secretly hope this doesn't sell, in the off chance that someday it might fit me? Probably...
But in all honesty, I would be just as happy to see it off to someone who appreciates it and can wear it, so if you are interested, you can check it out at our Etsy store.
