The fabric I used is Anna Maria Horner’s Loulouthi Clippings in Forest voile. It is heaven! Soft and breezy, and color so vibrant! I didn’t quite use the whole yard, so I’m hoping I can make a little something with the left-overs. This is my first attempt using voile and I love it… it’s a bit pricey so I think I will stick to smaller projects like this one.
I think the mandarin-esqe collar is one of my favorite features. The construction is geared toward an experienced sewist so make sure you’ve got your thinking cap on :)
