Do you have fabric that you feel is 'too precious to cut into'? Ridiculous, isn't it. It's not doing much good folded on a shelf. The Marimekko fabric that Andy brought back for me from Denmark a year or so ago just had to be used. I'm so very glad I plucked up the courage.
last time (a little shaping on the side seams and taking in at the front shoulder pieces) and cut the bottom panel in a continuation of the slight A-line shape.
The main fabric is a hemp/organic cotton denim from Duckcloth. Actually I don't know I'd really call it denim since it's really rather lightweight but quite beautiful and lovely to work with.
I haven't put pockets on this one yet. I'm a bit reluctant to spoil the simple look, but... I really love pockets. And I don't know that side seam pockets would do my shape any favours in this. Any suggestions?
