This unique French fabric from Elliott Berman is a little hard to look at close up. Not a few times I had to step away from the sewing machine and give my baby browns a rest. I don't know how those polka dots were manipulated to make them look like a blinking Times Square Jumbotron, do you?
This time I put a lot of care into gathering my sleeves before attaching the cuffs and I really like the way they came out.
Now it's time to tackle the color blocked version. Then maybe we can do a "which version do you like better" post.
