Made from an out of print Vogue pattern 2232, Geoffrey Beene (designer). Made of Kantha cloth a fabric made in India . . 2 pieces of cotton fabric hand sewn together vertically. Usually on 10 -12 yards made at a time. Once put together it is then usually overdyed.
I wanted to emphasize the seams so I sewed bias binding on the inside when sewing the seam, turned it to the right side and then hand sewed the bias binding over the exposed seam. A reverse of a French seam that is usually on the inside of a garment. Decided I did not want to put seam binding on the sleeve seam so I took some leftover fabric apart, made my own binding and finished the inside sleeve seam with it.
