Colette Lime Parfait - the third serving
I don't know if this is a lingering effect of making a coat, or possibly a response to the overwhelmingly hot and humid weather, but today I made the same pattern for the third time in the past month.
I am very pleased with it yet again.
However, it is only barely blog-worthy. What can one say about a pattern previously written about twice?
I changed something - I gathered the front straps slightly where they intersect with the gathered top of the front bodice. Thrilling! I used the same Simplicity skirt pattern as in the last version
The fabric is a cotton print, of small lime green target type circles on cream, January 2010 from Stitch Bliss. It is lined in the bodice and waistband with cotton batiste.
I do not feel very much like making this again immediately, in fact, I have put the pattern away in a box. I expect that I will make it next summer- once these three have worn out.
