Our trip to Iran is a month away...so I made another cover-up, AKA "Manteau".
I went back to my TNT shirt pattern B5526, which I've made too many times to count and came up with this:
It's got front and back princess seams, I added side-seam pockets, lengthened it to just above knee level, and added a belt.
The fabric is a wonderful hand-dyed cotton from Marcy Tilton called "Shibori Moon". Isn't that an evocative name? It's quite light weight, so will be good for the hotter days.
MARFY I made two "MUSLINS" in my search for a pattern for my MOTHER-OF-THE-BRIDE jacket for DD's wedding in October. I have a gorgeous fabric and am looking for a worthy pattern. I dipped my toe in the
Marfy pool (an Italian pattern company) and tried these two patterns:
which was pretty, but too large, and not really right for my fabric... and this
but will have to wait till I get back from Iran.
which shows some Manteaux in a store...they're brighter than I thought they'd be, but I don't see any patterns. We shall see...
MORE FROM MARGY LATER!
