More Iris

With my fabric finally arriving, I dug in and decided to make another Iris:

This time around I used a Cherry Blossom Liverpool knit that I picked up from Knitpop. I went with the 3.5″ inseam with a low waist and front pockets. Its definitely love.

I’m not normally a fan of Liverpool – it has a texture that I’m not necessarily a fan of and it can get bulky to work with, but this print was too adorable to pass up… and I’m so glad I got it. The texture is still weird, but it did sew up quite nicely – even the topstitching did well. As for the fit? This version is spot on. I think that the cotton fabric I used in the waistband of my original version was just too much stretch for the pattern.

    Hi Stacey! I followed you years ago when your son was just a little guy (you posted a pic of him in a monkey costume, I think). Anyway, I’m back into sewing after years away from it and had to look to see if you were still blogging! I sent your son some legos a very long time ago, maybe you remember? He must be a teenager by now is my guess as my son is graduating from high school this year and it was his legos that we sent to you since he had grown out of playing with them. Anyway, just popped in to say Hi! and I’m glad to see you are still sewing and blogging about it!
