I loved this Anna Marie Horner Innocent Crush velveteen – shown here in “Loves Me Loves Me Not Golden” (the mustard colorway) and “Bubble Burst Sparkle” (the blue). It was as lovely to work with as it was to fondle. A bit light for a velveteen, my construction using an orange double-knit full lining makes for a fairly warm garment set (you can see the tweed travelling set here).
Yes, of course I can line up patterns on the front placket. SHEESH. I finished the jacket with simple patch pockets, lined in scarlet cotton velveteen. Zig-zag topstitch detail.
Here we see the trouser back pockets, also lined in scarlet cotton sateen. Practical? Who knows! They are way too cute! Here you also get a glimpse of the t-shirt, made in a super-super-soft rayon knit. More below!
… I just had to show you these tiny little flare hems. ADORABLENESS
OK, the shirt. This wonderfully lightweight softie was crafted using the the Tee for Two pattern from Patterns by Figgys, a favorite of mine. The entire inside of the shirt is finished smoothly with no seams, making for ultra-comfortable wear. The public face of the garment has distressed-seam detail and raw-edge hems. The knit was so delicate I used my own methods for completion. A little bit finicky, but worth it. No serging shortcuts here.
As always, you can read a bit more about construction via the Flickr tagset. I am always happy to answer detailed questions about how I construct my garments.
