Nothing too exciting or different on this one - I struggled with binding the neckline for some reason, so ended up doing a facing which I just stitched down like bias, and this time I hemmed the sleeves flat with a tiny hem before doing the side seams which was SO MUCH EASIER and quicker than doing them as a tube!
I love this fabric and I think it works well with a few different coloured belts - I think my favourite will be the tan belt (with tan sandals) but the black is chic too! What's your favourite?
I was really pleased to be able to use one of these buttons too - it is one of three that my mum gave me, beautiful jet buttons that belonged to my great grandmother. They are amazingly beautiful, very heavy and the backs are very scratched from many years of being moved to different garments. I know it doesn't seem like a very special use for it, but I can always move it to a more salubrious project in the future! In the meantime I really wanted to get some wear out of them!
No more B5211 for a while. Probably.
