For this version I used some turquoise voile left over in the stash. I just about had enough, though had to shorten the sleeves a little. to get them to fit. Following my gut instinct from many sorbettoes, I cut a size 8 body with the sz18 length, and size 12 sleeves. I think I need to do a bit of an FBA, but otherwise I'm really happy with it.
Most of the seams are french-finished, and the external edges are finished with lime green bias tape, with accent buttons in a different shade of turquoise to maximise the clash! I think it gives it a very funky look. I even hand finished the bias tape, as I wanted clean lines.
Looking forward to all the variations that will be possible on this! And a great wardrobe builder. I have plans for 2 more basic ones in gorgeous, and one with a button up back.
MadMen sewing has totally stalled, but at least I'm sewing something, so I will hopefully get on with it soon!
