Whoops – I wrote this post in real time after sewing this top back in April of 2021. Somehow, despite having the post written and photos taken, I did not get this post published! So better late than never, here is the slightly modified Cielo Top I sewed using a beautiful Liberty Lawn kindly gifted to me from Minerva. It served me well over the past many months, but this fabric is perfect for autumn and is really about to shine as the temps get cooler!
I’ve had the opportunity to work with a lot of really incredible fabrics lately, but I think that this one really earned the spot for most luxurious fabric I touched in 2020. This fabric is amazing! While I love the lightweight, easy to work with, cool and breezy wonderfulness of cotton lawn in general, I’m often surprised to hear people get REALLY hyped up about it. I just don’t ever understand quite why? Sure, it is lovely, but is all that excitement really necessary?
