Nothing new or exciting here, a plain Lydia. I used the same fabric as my first ever Lydia (which was way too big and has since gone to a charity shop). I’m pleased with the fit, and it’s good to make a basic item to go with lots of things in my wardrobe, but I’m not happy with the wavy hem.
I’ve since read that tissue paper under the fabric whilst sewing is a good jersey trick – has anyone done this for hems?
