Sewn following the Emily pattern, using Liberty tawna lawn fabric. A bit of a splurge, but the fabric quality and beautiful print is worth it.
Quite simple to follow this pattern. I added 3" of length, and improvised waist darts to the front left and right pieces in line with the tip of the bust darts to add to the shaping.
I also chose to pair the buttons down the front—this is a favorite detail of mine, and I have used it when knitting cardigans as well!
Otherwise there were no modifications made to this size 44 pattern. Enjoy!
Liberty Tana Lawn (purchased at PurlSoho.com) and buttons from Tender Buttons on the UES in New York City.
