Colette - Laurel

Pattern: Colette - Laurel (Version 4)
Size: 12
Fabric: 2M of 45" width local cotton fabric (Nagoya)
  • Bias binding is hand stitched to the inside
  • Added 1" to the length  
  • French seams are used for all seams except the bell sleeve seam
  • Added a keyhole at the centre front, shortened it by 1-1/2" 
  • Hem is hand stitched, a double fold of first 1/2" and then 3/4"
  • The back piece is in one piece and the centre back is reduced by a total of 1/2"
I think I'm developing a fondness to french seam the arm holes.  It can be tricky in the beginning but with practice it'll get easier.  There is a good tutorial here by Grainline.
