Green stripes

Hawthorn 2 green stripes

This is my second hawthorn, you can find the first here, it is made in a thin striped linen in the colour of spring. I modified the collar to make it wider and to make it lie flat (the original looked like airplane wings ), the skirt to a gathered one and drafted cap-sleeves. I had planed for dark brown wooden buttons but after searching 4 different notion/yarn/fabric shops, I gave in and went for turquoise pear one instead. If I ever find the perfect brown button I might have to change them, since it would give the entire dress the feeling a was going for, more of a rustic, swedish summer feeling.

It was windy and I had huge trouble with taking photos so after selecting the acceptable ones I only had photos of my backside which is weird.

Next up sewing wise is a bow tied blouse that I have been working on. I really want a white silk bow tied blouse as well but have trouble locating some affordable fabric if you have any suggestions on where to find some “heavy”silk crepe or similar are welcome. An ivory lace bra, I bought a beautiful lace and some silk organza for it a few days ago, I am really excited to start that and it will probably be the next project I lay my hands on, it going to be so beautiful.

I have a newsletter, it will come occasionally and with previews of new designs and coupon codes. It will most likely not come more then 2 times a month and you can unsubscribe at any time.

    Nice dress! I think the green buttons look really good, but if you have set your mind on the wooden ones I understand if you will keep looking.

      Thank you it’s a grate dress pattern the only problem I find with it is the the collar is a little to round in the front and need a little straitening to prevent airplane wings instead of a collar but that is easy to fit, just keep that in mind before cutting you fabric, I recommend it and love both of mine.
      Me to I have lived in that cardigan ever sense he came of the needles and it tok several week of allot of use before I blocked it and sewed in the buttons. The pattern is Caylev by Amy Herzog
