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.
