from my favorite japanese pattern book
left off most of the ribbon trim to keep it from looking too fussy
I know Stylish Dress Book is hugely popular and has even now been published in English, but this book is even better I think
the linen (it feels amazing), thread and ribbon are from Tessuti in Flinders Lane (staff there are so lovely and helpful; they also sell online)
all my attempts at photos today are not great, sorry!
thank you for visiting my blog
hope this week ahead goes really well for you
love from Barbara x
