Yesterday I managed to squeeze in an hour around lunch and down time to cut the robe. I love the way English net looks and drapes, but I don't love how difficult it can be to cut and hand sew. It's very slippery.
And yes, I am the jerk who actually cuts vintage pattern pieces so they can be used instead of tracing them and reselling the pattern.
Total spent so far: $38 and 4:30
