Yay! I finished my first Closing the Gaps project, a red Beignet. The pattern was very easy to work with and would have been completed very quickly had I not decided to do 12 bound button holes. They look good anyways.
Fabric: corduroy ($7) red lining ($4.50) blue gingham facings (left overs from The Perfect Summer Dress)
Pattern: Colette Patterns Beignet
Notions: buttons ($2)
Time to complete: 3 days-would have been much faster without the bound button holes!
First worn:June 2011
Wear again? I've already worn it twice! The first time I wore it with the same top but a self fabric belt. I think this is going to be a great wardrobe staple!
Total Cost: $13.50
Top: New York and Company
Skirt: me made
Belt: Cassie Stephens Beltmaker
Hair flower: Belle Blossoms
