My fabric isn't as great as Zoe's, if I could've convinced her to send me some of that too I would have done. Instead, I raided my Mum's fabric stash. Years ago she had her own quilting shop and has various different quilting cottons stored away in the loft since. This is just one of those fabrics, a crisp white cotton with a coral print. I'm not a fan of coral, at least on me, but I really liked this print for this shirt.
I finally learned how to make tucks properly. Of course, it involved a phonecall and then a video Skype conference with my Mother in order for me to understand exactly what I was supposed to be doing. I kept coming up with ways that didn't allow me to see the sewing line or created a pleat instead. But now I can say that I have that particular skill cracked!
