This could also be titled "A Cautionary Tale About Failing to Use Interfacing"
Made this outfit for a party. I used some vintage fabric I picked up at a thrift store. The skirt was from an old pattern with an elastic waist, which I modified to be a side zip. I also added four buttons on the front, sailor style. The buttons are these awesome lion things I pulled off the most ridiculous jacket and vest combo ever (from the 80s--remember those silk windbreaker things? yeah).
Grrr! I'm kind of in love with these!
Close up of the vest:
I really regret not interfacing the button placket and the collar. But I think it still looks ok! I made the vest by modifying the free Franzi vest pattern at burdastyle.com http://www.burdastyle.com/pattern/show/20 Below you can see my final muslin next to the pieces of the original pattern (already shortened a little bit)
Let me know what you think!
