This fabric was kindly gifted to me by Atelier Jupe earlier this year, with no obligation attached. I truly feel honored to have had the chance to get familiar with this fabric company and have the chance to work with some of their fabric – it is fantastic quality and it was a joy to work with! This viscose was part of their Spring / Summer 2021 line, and I’ve already grabbed a cut from their Autumn / Winter 2021 – 2022 line to start up soon!
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!
While I certainly didn’t expect to feel like a beautiful, perfectly styled princess while at the hospital for labor and delivery, I wanted to put together a few things that would feel pretty and meaningful – and keep me out of the hospital gown throughout my admission! When I was offered an opportunity to sew up the Named Lahja Dressing Gown in this beautiful Liberty cotton lawn as part of a kit from Minerva, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for.
I picked out this beautiful, cream lurex sweater knit with ideas of an oversized comfy cardigan that I could wear at home throughout my 12-week maternity leave. I couldn’t decide between my go-to cardigan pattern, the Helen’s Closet Blackwood Cardigan, or trying out a new pattern in the form of the True Bias Marlo. So naturally, as I decided between those two… I settled on a two piece lounge set that has nothing to do with cardigans! Classic.
