The opening is the front flap from the armscye to the collar, closed with snaps and frogs.

So how does this go on? Just pull it over your head or side- fasten or...?

I now order Folkwear patterns online, but have found them on clearance at a couple of small-town fabric stores before. They do not seem to be very popular but if I see any on sale that I do not have, I snatch them up! I have made the cheesemaker's smock in charcoal wool, japanese field pants, and the Moroccan burnoose. I have made the Moroccan burnoose 2 times in wool, and once in velvet burnout as a wrap for formalwear. velvet burnoose You can see the wool ones at my blog. Thank you for the compliment! I love to sew with silk, but I usually do a muslin first.

Do you have a local suppplier for Folkwear patterns? I recently ordered the Glamour Girl Dress pattern, a throwback to the 40's. Have you sewn other garments using Folkwear? You look lovely in your featured dress. Would you consider a class of silk for your next project? Thanks for sharing.
