this pattern last year but didn't get to it and it jumped out at me when I was looking through my patterns for spring inspiration. I finished it yesterday and was so happy with it I wanted to share it with you! But just so you know I dressed this way just for the post, the temperature is in the 40s so I dressed more appropriately to go out.
The fabric is a linen coated with a silvery finish which I bought at Joanns quite a few years ago.
This is a fun to make pattern, quite a few pieces, the back peplum is cut on the bias for a nice drape.
I didn't know what to do about the ties, I didn't have any nice ribbons or tapes so then I remembered that I had white cotton yarn and I made an I-cord. I finished it with silver beads (found some nice weight beads to stretch the I-cord a bit)
In this picture the color/finish of the fabric looks like in real life (hard to photograph with flash!)
