I loved making her Mariposa tee, and definitely plan to make more of her patterns in the future! Love the uncomplicated yet gorgeous styles! Also love her kids patterns, little M is definitely getting a Huck Finn Cap this fall!
So here's my attempt at the Paloma. I made the top version, but am pondering a longer version in the future perhaps. I'm loving the flowy shape for the summer months!
It went together pretty smoothly. It was my first time working with the steam a seam, but it was neat, definitely made the seams on the knit fabric nice and easy to work with! I made up the XS but with the XL length for my tallness. The fabric is just something I found at my local chain store. Nice and kinda retro I thought. With this city being such a wasteland for nice patterned knit, I was happy to find something!
Overall, I'm quite pleased! Thanks Meg!
And so a few more pictures just because:
