It’s the second version I have made, this is in a darker denim from Fabrics Galore, has a great drape. Pockets are lined with Hemingway fabric left over from my last Mortmain dress, again fabric from Fabrics Galore.
The monster chose this zip last weekend from the Eternal Maker, adds a lovely back detail.
I used shell buttons and stitched them on with my machine. I spend my working days teaching & advising people about sewing machines and never use half the features on my own! Its so easy I can only suggest the next time you need to stitch on a button, check all those extra bits that you have tucked away from your sewing machine and if you have a button foot – try. If anyone would like a tutorial on this do get in touch and I’ll make one simple step by step guide.
