During Me-Made-May I kept seeing some fabulous clothes and a lot of them seemed to be from The Sewing Workshop. Now I do already have a couple of their patterns and they are all a little bit edgy, so I wasn’t surprised that I was tempted by more. I bought the Odette & Ivy pattern and set about making Odette whilst I was camping last week.
I used a bit more of the greenish cotton knit that I found at REmida (a local reuse facility) as I was treating this as a wearable muslin.
This is a pattern with a lot of nice details and it actually reminded me a bit of my leap of faith top. Odette is the top on the left.
It was surprisingly simple to make. I do think that my neck binding could have been a little bit shorter and was tempted to remove it and have another go, but decided that it wasn’t enough of a concern for a toile.
I really like the shape of the back, although I’m not sure why that seam is puckering a bit – perhaps because I didn’t press it well enough.
So, I shall be making more of these in the spring. I really want a striped one…
