Well this is an unexpected bonus. My new sparkly linen top works very well with one of my old favourites.
This skirt was recently rescued from the depths of my wardrobe. It’s a bit faded but still loved!
But let me tell you about the fabric in my top.
It’s a coated linen from The Fabric Store in Sydney.
No I don’t live in Sydney. But I have worked out I can fit in a quick visit to The Fabric Store on the way to the airport if my Sydney meeting finishes by 3:30 PM. And lots of them do.
Both The Fabric Store, and Tessuti Fabrics Surry Hills store, are located close to Central train station. Hop off the T8 line out to Sydney airport. Take a short walk there and back, then continue on your way to catch your flight. With new fabric…
The Fabric Store also has an excellent and extensive selection of Liberty. Even some on sale. I resisted. This time.
So jealous of sydneysiders with these two stores as their local fabric stores!
This is a repeat pattern make. I didn’t notice that the darts are a smidge low the first time I made this. But this plain linen shows everything! Even wrinkles after 5 minutes of wear.
At my age (#fashionoverfifty), I’m embracing the wrinkles!
This is an excellent pattern. Uses less than a metre of fabric. I can see several more in my sewing future!
