Indygo Junction Cowl Neck Shift For Me

I decided to try out one of the Indygo Junction patterns I won from the Vintage Modern Design Challenge last month, The Cowl Neck Shift, and I’m very pleased with the pattern!
The fit was very good with just the right amount of ease and the design is simple and perfect for beginners. I didn’t need to do any pattern adjustments.
I used a vintage silk charmeuse I bought last year at the Rose Bowl Flea Market.
I’m not sure how old it is.
Any ideas?
I’m thinking eighties.
The pattern has a simple casing sewn onto it with a drawstring belt.
 I like the cowl neck and it was very easy to sew. It’s cut on the bias and it drapes really nicely.
 When the weather cools down I’ll wear it with some tights and boots.
I would definitely recommend this pattern.
It’s quick to make and the fit is good!
 The Book Giveaway is still on through Friday! Stop by to enter.

    You look stunning. I hope this doesn’t hang in your closet, unworn. Everything about it compliments you. What a deal. Good job!
