The pattern I started with is Butterick 4443, one of those patterns that's been around so long that it's easy to overlook. It's a great basic with a boat neck, princess seams, and flared skirt.
I used a really pretty cotton/rayon brocade that was surprisingly tricky to work with.
P.S. At your request, I recorded another uke video! Ever want to see a pink-haired soprano sing Folsom Prison Blues in her nightie in her sewing room?
P.P.S. I got more stock of some of the fabrics that sold out last week:
|Betsey Johnson silk chiffon|
|Butterfly print silk crepe de chine|
|Cherry Blossom Swiss Dot|
