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.
