Work in progress

I’ve had the Sewaholic Gabriola pattern since last September, and this lovely floral viscose bought from Walthamstow market for about the same amount of time ready to become a matching set of skirt and sleeveless top. 

  The intention is that theyd be worn together for the maxi dress look, or as separates for more wardrobe versatility. This week I finally started cutting pieces for my Gabriola, though having underestimated quite how much fabric this pattern takes I bought just less than 3.5m of fabric. It may require some creative pattern placement to have enough left for a top!

Reading blogs this week I see that Morgan of crabandbee has had a similar idea, and made up Gabriola and a very elegant cowl neck top in a beautiful blue. I can only hope mine turns out half as nice.
