linen love

It’s a birthday gift for a friend.

The fabric is from the Rouenneries line by French General for Moda.  It’s a linen/cotton blend and drapes beautifully.

I added a few patches and played a bit with decorative stitches.

Here’s the part I’m most excited about.

The waist band was made using french seams.  That means all the exposed edges on the wrong side are enclosed and extra pretty.  (Thanks to this explanation on french seams from oliver + s.)
