Notes Printed Muslin with apple green cotton lawn contrast.
Needs careful marking of fold lines and joins at yoke.
Instructions good but brief.
Next time I will stitch along fold lines to make post laundering pressing easier.
Yoke needs to be in a more contrasting colour to accentuate the design details. The colour I chose is a bit bland.
I hand-stitched along the inside of the pleat to give some definition to pleats. I also shortened top by about 5cm to make it a more carefree summer style.
I think this style would look great in a light silky fabric that drapes well.
