Hope you are enjoying life.
It is still hot here in my little part of Australia so it is hard to think about sewing for winter. I have an extensive collection of natural fibre fabrics for warm weather sewing, to inspire me in and around my Tafe sewing.
I was fortunate enough to get wind of the Fabric store sale on Liberty cottons at the beginning of the year so raced in and bought a few different types to use.
One was this lovely print. It feels incredible so light.
I love the colours so much that I promptly cut out a top to make for myself. (No post on that yet haven’t started it). But when I had cut it out I realised because of the width of the fabric that I had enough to make a shirt for my husband. I had a discussion with him about Easter and he declared he wanted no chocolate this year , so I offered to make him a Summer shirt for Easter.
As is often the case I jump in, I hadn’t made a mans shirt before but as I was basing it on a RTW shirt he liked and using a pattern I had I figured I would be ok.
The pattern I used was M2447.
The alterations needed were done to replicate his shirt and it came together really well. I lined the collar with navy linen. It fits really well and he is very pleased with it so much so he wore it to our family Easter lunch.
The photo with the belated message is of our view for lunch.
I hope you are enjoying this time of year wherever you are,
