When I saw this post on Sew Tessuti, I had a sudden strong rekindling of my younger fondness for Liberty Lantana. This stuff is wonderful for winter clothes. When I was in high school, I had a long skirt made from it, and I loved it.
This pattern looks just like my most favorite store bought tops, and will look wonderful in my recently acquired Lantana, which is about 50 times more vivid in real life, (has anyone else noticed that there is a similarity between Liberty and Wollmeise colourways?). I just had to get the pattern, which according to the blog post above was no longer available. But it is available right now, and while it is expensive, all the versions that I have seen made up look wonderful.
One is on its way to me. It is going to give me the strength to cut the Lantana. Looking at those tops is also giving me thoughts about a Tova in vintage Viyella….
