i got both the white and fuschia fabric and the coordinating raspberry solid lining fabric on sale almost two years ago at stonemountain & daughter, and while beautiful i hadn't been able to find the right use for it until now.
for the sides i used straight stitch seams which were an excellent choice. as they looks good from the inside:
and like decrotive top stitching from the outside.
