Lately, I am particularly drawn to garments that have some kind of gathering detail, especially to the neck. I'm not sure why; it isn't always the most flattering. The fabric here is some kind of synthetic crepe I guess. I'm not certain because I bought it in a second hand / vintage store ages ago. I liked the fabric so much that it took me a long time to use it, which seems silly but I'm sure you understand.
This project does make me see why so many people say you should stick to natural fibers, but I do like to buy second hand so can't always be that choosy. Anyhow I love the soft grey and the burgundy leaves.
