Nellie made a shirt for Keeth using the WRONG side of our Wabash Stripe Japanese cotton, adding cool details like brass snaps, a customized pocket - the stripes match so well it is practically invisible, plus a cool customized label.

New Summer Katherine Pattern: B6771 in Coppola Stripe

Coppola Stripe Japanese Cotton 

in

Butterick 6771

Colorful stripes in shades of yellow, green, peach, blue and white in varying widths are woven into this gorgeous Japanese cotton. Fine shirting weight, opaque with a soft hand and light airy drape. Similar to what I see in Paris at Charvet, the oldest men's shirtmaker in the world.  Beautiful quality, right for a shirt, tunic, dress, skirt, top, children's wear  or a man's shirt.
The dress shown here, made by Katherine is a prototype for Katherine"s new summer shirt/shirt dress, Butterick 6771.

The perfect little black dress for summer

Nellie lengthened the dress 10" within the body, keeping the hem panels the same. She added a shallow V neck with a narrow facing and cap sleeve and pockets in both side seams.

The fabric is pure pleasure to sew and will feel delicious and floaty on a warm day.
