Completed Sewing Project: New Look 6349
The fabric is a stretch cotton with a slight satin sheen. I just noticed that the sleeve on one side is caught up - my photographer should have noticed but he was too busy trying to take a photo/feed the cats/help with homework! I did not need to use interfacing as the fabric is quite firm. To ensure the facing sits flat I used some more of the magic Korbond iron on Viledon hemming tape.
The main problem with this pattern is that I am not exactly buxom and therefore it does gape a bit at the front. I could put a hidden snap fastener, but I think it might be better to wear a brooch. Today I wore it with the linen cotton blend skirt from the Butterflies shop ($2) and my black button Melissa shoes.
