Happy International Women’s Day!

I wanted something purple, green and white for IWD to pay tribute to all those women who fought the good fight for us so that we could vote. Fancy that, not being allowed to vote?

A Butterick 5032 frankenfrock was just the ticket. I noticed Tiger Feet put up a gorgeous sheath version just this week too. A most versatile pattern.
