The body is a linen-cotton blend with 1/4" bias tape cut from the same fabric.

Lace is 100% cotton bought from my local fabric store, Beverly's.

Buttons are antiqued silver, also bought from Beverly's.  Buttonholes were hand-sewn since my sewing machine is about thirty years old.

Also, I didn't use a pattern.

Very pretty and delicate!  I adore the lace you used at the bottom.
