Merchant & Mills Camber Set Tee : Liberty of London Summer Tana Lawn
Liesl & Co. Everyday Skirt : Cotton + Steel Lucky Strikes Cotton Lawn
Mature Ha abaca hat from Gaspard
Toucan Double necklace

It all started with Jacqueline’s idea to add contrast pockets to her Everyday Skirt during the last Sewing Date at the workroom studio. She even made a small adjustment to the pattern so that the contrast fabric would peek out more. Cute!

I knew that I needed to make my own version, so I picked out this navy cotton lawn from the Lucky Strikes collection by Kimberly Kight. I searched through my stash for a contrast fabric and found an unused piece of Summer Liberty of London that perfectly matches. Clearly I also needed to make a matching top to go with this skirt, as well. I had the right amount for a Camber Set Tee. I’m all about making coordinating separates, it gives you so many more options.

The Everyday Skirt is definitely a pattern you’ll want to make multiples of, so that you can wear them everyday. It’s simple sewing, comfortable wearing and cute looking. This is a really great pattern if you’re just starting to make clothes. I’m excited to be teaching the Everyday Skirt as a class at the workroom this fall. I love sharing my favourite patterns and tricks in the classroom.

This is my second Camber Set Tee in Liberty of London. This is such a great woven tee pattern and I love the fit. It feels slightly dressy but goes with everything. I have another tee already cut out, waiting in my project queue in polka dot cotton lawn.

I’m usually very minimal with accessories but I could not resist this abaca hat by Mature Ha from Gaspard. It was my one summer purchase. I obsessed about it for over a month before deciding that sun protection needs to be taken seriously and this was clearly a very responsible choice. With the colder weather moving in, I’m going to miss wearing it.

The handmade necklace is a fun collaboration between Lizzy House &  I.
