First closing the gaps project complete!
This skirt has been hanging in my closet for about 5 years without much to match it. I am so excited because today it has a mate. I am proud to announce the new couple. This was not the original pattern that was earmarked for making a match for this skirt. I changed my mind after sewing up some muslins from varies blouse patterns. I liked this Chinese style shirt the best for this skirt. I have really enjoyed this pattern. The pattern calls for a snap closure, but I added vintage buttons instead. Adding buttonholes on stretch fabric was tricky, thanks Casey for suggesting interfacing, it worked. Anyway one down! We are getting closer to fewer gaps. How is everything going for you today?
Have a wonderful vintage day!
