~The fabric is a calico- not quite sure where I bought it. I intended to sew a long sleeve pepulim blouse, BUT when I went to make the "sloper"/"Muslen", the pattern ran small, and the blouse was too small....I gave it up, and a few years later I happily sewed a new dress instead!
~No Zipper- I never had SO much trouble- I pulled it out 2 times, before I ended up with a simple key-hole! I felt cross-eyed!
~I used my go-to pattern, the retired Simplicity #8071 =)
*SONP not is officially happening this year, but I like to sew, and wear cute dresses & skirts anyway, so I'll just do my own thing....
