Elsie Overshirt in Liberty

Only one more week of school until holidays – yay!! I haven’t been sewing much these days. I’ve been too bogged down by school stuff and life crap, but also, I just don’t feel like I need any new clothes right now. I’m hoping this practical part of my brain quietens down soon and let the cray cray sewing lady back out for the holidays 😉

Another make from last school holidays was this Style Arc Elsie overshirt in Liberty tana lawn from The Fabric Store.

My last Elsie shirt was such a hit I knew I would make another. Being tana lawn, this one will also come in handy as a beach cover up when the weather warms up.

I really love this print – the mix of pink, blue and green is spot on. I also finally got to use some really lovely, mother of pearl buttons that I have had stashed for a few years.

I really love this shirt. Now that I’ve remembered about it by writing this post, I might even crack it out again this week. With my silver shoes and belt of course.

    I have this pattern and havn’t made it up yet but looks like it won’t be long before I do. Looks good.

  • love it with MOP buttons. I cut out a 2nd Elsie on the weekend ;o)
