My fabric from Japan came and it’s lovely. This first piece I’ve made Elota in, is %100 cotton from Cotton N Steele in a color I call Midnight blue with little black flowers printed on it. The picture makes it appear brighter than it really is, and it’s not really navy. For Elota I used the XS but had to add a 1” gusset under at the underarm to fit my bust. I wanted a smooth look so I put my French seams to the underneath of the dress. I’m very happy with it. I hand stitch all my bindings for a finished look. I’ll be able to wear this almost to cold weather.
