I have boxes of beautiful old linens in my basement, hidden from view and largely forgotten. When the Jennifer Sew Along started this amazing linen tablecloth with appliquéd and embroidered lanterns popped into my mind. Why not bring it out of the dark and let it see the world?
I wanted my Jennifer to have a more summery feel than it’s plaid counterpart so I cut the neck a little wider and deeper and made wide, floaty sleeves with no cuffs. I was going to add the pleats at the waist but ended up feeling there was enough going on with the lanterns and the hand pick-stitching which was on the original tablecloth. I just let it fall where it may.
