Back in January / February, I had the pleasure of choosing this fun, romantic, ruffly top pattern from the lineup of patterns offered in Issue 13 of Fibre Mood magazine, in exchange for promoting the pattern on launch day! I had participated with Fibre Mood launches before, and I was more than thrilled to jump in on this one. My baby bump was just beginning to show, and I knew this pattern would see me through pregnancy and nursing, between the lovely ruffled bodice and button-down front. I had the most romantic, dusky pink Liberty London cotton lawn just waiting on my shelf for the perfect pattern to come along, and the Rozan Top was the answer. It was all falling into place!
Is there anything more lovely and romantic than Liberty fabric? I’ve admired it from afar for quite awhile, but this was my first time working with it. It is definitely worthy of all the hype that it receives! I went all in with my first cut of Liberty fabric – a top for me, a dress for my Mini, and a couple of ridiculous matching accessories to top it off!
Have you ever decided that a pattern wasn’t for you, only to find yourself inexplicably drawn to it over and over again? That was me with the Norma Blouse. For some reason, when I first saw the line drawings for this pattern it just didn’t speak to me as something I thought I would wear often. I don’t know what it was about it, but I quickly decided that this was one I could live without… Until I couldn’t 🙂
