I'm not a socialite (might even be an anti-socialite) but I do love this song by the Dirty Projectors (it sounded especially great live last week!), and this sewing pattern, put together by Anna-Maria Horner.
I've made this pattern once before- back in 2009, even. I think I like it made up in this flowy fabric better- it's great for summer and the big side pockets are good. The fabric is a silky cotton with arrows and I wish I had made better use of this feature when cutting out the neckline pieces- I didn't think about it but it would have been good to place them at a contrasting angle.
I made a simple tie from the leftover fabric and a thread loop on the side to hold it in place. Fingers crossed this summery weather lasts a little longer...
Wishing you a happy weekend, dear reader.
