After seeing so many woven Lindens popping up online, I couldn’t help bit want to try one out myself. I’ve had this coral metallic stripe fabric in my stash for years now. I’m hoping that the new Anna Maria Horner Loominus collection is similar to this. These types of yarn dyes are so fun to make clothing with.
I made a few modifications to the pattern to adjust for the lack of stretch in the fabric. Many people went up a size, but I had a feeling based on all my past versions that I could get away with sticking to the same size. I did adjust the width of the sleeves to make them less tight. I added a half inch to either size of the width of the sleeve pattern. I added a half inch to the width of the cuff band and also cut it half as tall to make a skinnier cuff. I also added a bit of length to the neck band. I had to redo the neck band a couple times to get it just right. As always, I cut the cuffs and bands on the bias to get some extra stretch.
The Linden is proving to be an all-star pattern in every way!
