It is really nice chambray linen, a little bit on a thicker side, very wrinkly and soft. I actually used it to make this pillow a while back. It really goes well with everything and anything.
A little closeup:
I used a matching bias tape around the neck and a cotton one from a previous project to finish armholes (bias tape on the underside). Darts turned out very nice and smooth.
Just a few more pics...
Wouldn't this make a nice dress?
I will definitely reuse this pattern. In fact, next week, I will write about a top I made previously because I would like to make pdf versions of these 4 patterns I made over the last 4 weeks and make them available for download. We'll see how that goes.
