When it comes to clothes-sewing, there is nothing like finding a pattern that just works. It’s the best, and I’ve LOVED this pattern for that exact reason. One of these days I’ll try making it as a dress, but for now, an adapted shirt version is what I keep coming back to.
This was one of my architextural wearables that I sported at Market (see here). While the prints in this collection are a lot of what I have wanted to use in my quilt-making, I’ve also been having a lot of fun using them for clothes-making.
Here, I used the green topo and gray ledger prints. I was so stoked with the ledger-print, bias trim on this shirt, that I ended up using it for cording in my recent clutch.
And I’m seeing more and more shops receiving their fabric! Here are some more.
