Making: with Liberty print jersey cotton

posted in: Grow Mama, Uncategorised

I picked up this colourful garden print at The Fabric Store’s last sale. I couldn’t make it in so bought it online and was so gutted when it arrived. It felt all stiff, like a polyester. 
It softened up when I prewashed the fabric luckily. Phew. That stuff is not cheap, even on sale!
I didn’t even know Liberty did a range of jersey cotton.

I am on a mission to make up every variation of the Sew Knit Love Sarah’s dress pattern. It’s a bit of a misnomer, because the same pattern makes a short sleeve and longsleeve shirt in woven or stretch, a tunic dress with pockets (you can see one of mine HERE) and a full skirted dress. I love an adaptable pattern. 

I’m loving the cut of this top. It’s perfect for layering on top of dresses or wearing with high-waisted jeans or skirts. It’s a bit like wearing a garden. And it has yellow in it. To match my favourite new yellow Saltwater sandals. And yes, I am tending toward wearing more colour. It’s ironic that my son, whose been highly critical of me wearing too much black over the years, is now tending to wear black himself, being of a certain age.
