i used the lydia pattern as a start and widened the sleeves and added a bib. i had a hard time figuring out how i could make the stitching work. i didn’t want to do pintucks. i wanted to flatlock it on my serger with a thick thread but the thick needle damaged the fabric. in the end i used my normal sewing machine for the fancy stitching, with the thick wool thread in the bobbin so i could still use a normal stretch needle. i didn’t plan it on looking so vintage but i really like it.
fabric from the greuter jersey factory store in switzerland
