When this fabric hit my inbox from Minerva about a year ago, I had a lightweight black blouse in mind immediately. However, when it arrived, I began to wonder where my head had been when I chose this fabric. I am absolutely a prints person – bright florals, animal prints, even silly novelty patterns, I’m your girl! When I do choose a solid, it is typically something bright – or at the least, something shiny. This was none of the above. A solid black cotton voile – soft, lightweight, and lovely… but not bright, not colorful, not printed. What in the WORLD was I going to do with this?
I’m so excited to share this top with you today. This is my first time sewing with Fibre Mood to help promote their newest patterns (released today as Issue 11 of FibreMood Magazine). This is my second Fibre Mood pattern to work with, after the Mindy Dress, and I’ve been so impressed with the quality and design of their patterns.
The newest pattern in the True Bias lineup was released on Tuesday, and I am so excited to show you the version I whipped up as a pattern tester! I sewed this fun tee up at the end of February, just a few months before the world turned upside down and social distancing became our norm. This was the second pattern that I’ve tested for True Bias, and just as with the last, it was such a pleasure to test for Kelly!
One of my favorite makes of 2019 went live on the Minerva blog this morning! I’ve been truly in love with this tee since making it, and wouldn’t mind one bit if I just had a closet full of these. I wear this shirt on a weekly basis, and I’m so happy to finally be sharing it with you guys! How many times have you made this free pattern already???
