Lydia as babydoll top

Added Dec 3, 2007

Bavaria, Germany






I saw a shirt that I really liked at Anthropologie and so I modified the Lydia pattern to look like it. I like how the pattern turned out but I think that it is kind of boring in black. That’s why I added the facing in a printed jersey that I had left from my wrapdress and red buttons. I will probably use this pattern again for a long sleeve shirt in a brighter colour.

Material Notes

Cotton jersey, glass buttons

    This is great! Would you be interested in writing a how-to for how you altered the pattern for this?

    Nice result. I was thinking of sewing Lydia sleeveless and I like how yours turned out.
