Mawston Meadow Liberty print that I bought in France and was left over from my Laurel so cut the pattern out a few weeks ago, but then sidelined it for a while. Firstly for my cape and then for my culottes. I don't normally sew like that, where I have an unfinished item that lingers around but fortunately Me Made May provided enough incentive to finish just one more item before month end.
this great podcast interview with Kenneth D King on fit - so I was kind of forced to focus on getting that bit right - as best as I could. By the way, highly recommend these podcasts! I think I'll work my way through them all.
So the bow! Amanda mentioned in her post about the bow and yikes, the instructions ask you to gather it, but seriously, I had interfaced the bow (as per the pattern instructions) and as a result there was no way that bow was going to be gathered! Tana Lawn is pretty lightwight, so in all honesty, if I were to make this again, I wouldn't interface. And wearing the top today to work it felt a bit top heavy and I worried a bit about how the bow was sitting. You can see from the photos that the bow has a tendency to move bit which, with a floppy bow wouldn't be such a big deal. I wish I'd noticed the slight lopsidedness of how the bow was sitting before I took the pictures - but hey it's going to move around a bit anyway as it's only attached at the centre!
