I bought this pattern last summer and tucked it away. A few weeks ago when I moved into the studio, I found it again and decided to finally sew it up……
I added a bit of color here and there and a favorite vintage napkin of mine on the front pocket. I've actually had that napkin for years…. just waiting for the perfect thing. I think this may have been it! I love the combination of linens and the splash of yellow in the ties. And that pocket?!? That pocket is amazing! You could totally fit a dinner's worth of garden bounty in there, for sure.
This is actually my first pattern by Sew Liberated and I'm quite happy with it. The finishing details are well done….. it looks professionally made with all the seams tucked in somewhere and hidden. Plus there are video links online, so you can watch the process. This was very helpful for me, I'm such a visual person. Being able to see a technique I have never done is so much easier than reading a "how to". Also, being a small-ish (ok, short) person, I was worried that the pattern wouldn't fit well, it's a one size fits all. But guess what? It did! It looked lovely on Jade who is several inches taller than me and you can see it on Sophie too, who is still shorter than her mama. At least for now…
You can find the pattern here, the linen here, and the yellow here. (It's Denyse Schmidt Hope Valley.) I've picked up a few more patterns by Meg and hope to sew something else soon. Maybe this tunic or this blouse. Really loving the second one. A lot.
What have you been stitching up these days?
