colette laurel in airtex

IMG_4118I have made a super summer Laurel in cotton airtex, a fabric I haven’t worn since school!  I should have ironed this for the photo’s – but with the heat just couldn’t face turning on the iron.

This time I did not bind the neckline, but added a facing – due to the nature of the fabric found this so much easier.  Found the airtex cotton at Fabrics Galore a week or so ago, its perfect for the hot summer.  The fabric is narrow in width so ended up buying 2 dress lengths, plus sleeve and it worked out brilliantly.
