As my name is Lydia I absolutely had to do the Lydia pattern sooner or later. But I altered it a bit (it is the perfect pattern for alterations!), I made sleeves and body 15 cm longer and changed the neckline. I also ever wanted sleeves with a hole for the thumb in it! The fabric cost only 2€/meter. I really like how it turned out and it is really comfy to wear.
Btw.: that’s Walter Ulbricht I’m trying to kiss, but I had to laugh so hard. He lives in our kitchen and watches over our kooking (and the bratwursts)
cotton jersey I think
