After reading Alissa’s post about family dinners, I knew exactly what she needed for a housewarming gift.
The pattern is available in Heather’s shop. I purchased it locally at my favorite store ever because I’m impatient. Plus, any excuse to look at fabric kid-free is a good one. The fabric is also Heather Bailey.
I sewed a size small. The pattern calls for one fabric for the outside and another for the lining. I decided to switch things up a bit. The 1/2 yard of the lining fabric will give you enough to make contrasting pockets if you cut very carefully. I also used the lining waistband piece for the outside and the outside piece for the lining.
It was a quick, easy sew and I think it turned out WAY cute (if I do say so myself). I didn’t especially like how the halter ties attached. There’s probably a trick to making that easier, but I didn’t figure it out on my first sew through. The directions were clear and easy to follow and I’ll definitely be making this one again.
