Heralded by beautiful pink cherry blossoms in our back yard, spring has officially arrived in Northern California. All the gorgeous wool and plaid fabrics I purchased this winter, with unrealistic dreams of making warm and toasty work clothes, must be packed away for another couple of seasons. But remember this fabric, purchased on our trip to Zurich, Switzerland, last summer?
Vintage Vogue dress pattern V1044, with cap sleeve integrated into the yoke, and drafted a basic peplum. (Yes, another peplum. It's really becoming a signature staple in my wardrobe and I still love them!) The yoke lining and inside button placket were made from white cotton lawn, to get more mileage out of my meter. Yup, mixing my units of distance right there :)
