Another pattern pulled from the collection!! Although, this one shouldn’t really count as it’s a very recent addition to the collection.
This is Colette Patterns Hawthorn, of course. This version is technically a muslin before I cut into my Liberty fabric.
The deeeelightful buttons are vintage by way of my grandma 😀
They totally make the top!!
Their awesome green color make this basic more of a specialty piece, since it will be difficult to match things with them. This oldie but goodie skirt was a perfect fit!!
This is mostly a size two. I did taper out the side seams a bit. To about a size 4 or 6. Things were looking a tad small, so I used a much smaller seam allowance than the pattern calls for. The cotton has since relaxed a bit, which makes me wonder if I should have stuck with 5/8 of an inch, after all.
‘Tis no matter! I LOVE this make!! And I am so proud of its fit and finishing!! You can’t see how neat and clean it is on the inside. Oh, wait. Let me take a pic.
Tracing the pattern used the last of my tracing paper. Though, I wonder about tracing a larger size. My real concerns are the armholes and sleeves. I like the rest of the fit, but I HATE super snug sleeves and tight underarms. I planned to add sleeves to this one, but I didn’t have enough fabric. It might take another muslin.
You know what was super fun?? That little snap at the waistline audibly popping open (repeatedly) after I had lunch!
AHAHAHAHAHA How I LAUGHED!!
I won’t add one of those, again.
Well, that’s all, folks!! Did you make a Hawthorn? Link it up in the comments!
