Summertime Lydia

My first “pattern-sewn” piece of clothing, hooray! I used the Lydia pattern without sleeves, and with a non-stretch fabric. I modified the neckline a bit, after struggling quite some time trying to make a nice rounded neckline with a non-elastic fabric… and I made darts on the front for a slightly closer fit.

Material Notes

Non-stretch fabric from Åhléns

    Thank you! No zipper here. The modified neckline is a bit wider than in the original pattern, and there is some slack in the back, so I can (just barely) pull it over my head as it is.
