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.
