This photo doesn't pick up the beautiful rich turquoise color, but I think I will be pairing it with a long, white, embroidered, cotton, skirt. I have the perfect fabric in my stash. I just have to decide on the pattern.
I am nearly finished cutting out my Burda jacket for the RTW Sew Along Sherry is hosting. It has a lot of pieces, and I am choosing to cut the fabric in a single layer also.
