Banksia sewalong: dress show and tell

You will be SO proud of me. I totally resisted the urge to go all 60’s in your face, and style this like a retro flight attendant – because you know with this fabric button combo, we are constant danger of going in that direction hehehe.

Rambling aside, I think it turned out really well! I’m really glad i added the pocket topstitching, because even though it’s a tad puckery (eh you win some you lose some), I feel like it adds enough visual interest that i don’t feel bound to belt it all the time. You know?
