Retro Butterick 5603

Hello everyone! Today I am going to share with you my second ever sewing project. It was a killer, considering the only other thing I had made at the time was an apron. I probably haven’t even made anything quite this difficult since! I am pretty proud of it and glad I persevered and finished it.  I used red and white weaved lightweight linen.

 

Thanks for looking!

    • At the time, it was quite frustrating not knowing what was the right side, but now I’m sure it would be less difficult.
