I love the oversize pockets & the relaxed vibe of it. But I don't entirely love it on me. I'm not sure if it's slightly too long or the waist sits too high, but it's not a homerun on me.
But, it certainly is comfy. I love the flow of it, and this linen that I have had in the stash for YEARS is super soft and swishy to wear.
I tried it on and found that the feature pockets were just too much for my shorter frame -- they kind of looked like saddle bags. So I looked around on Instagram a bit at other versions by short sewists & found a look I liked. Someone else had just tacked down the centre of the pocket with a button. No buttonholes needed, as half the pocket is still big enough to get your hand into! 😄
So I searched in my button stash & found the perfect lightweight neutral toned buttons & added them, and that made all the difference. I love the pockets this way.
I took the first batch of photos paired with my recent bow blouse with bow detached (more on that later) I think a shorter & more streamlined top may work better for this one. I will test it with my next capsule project, the Edith Blouse.
Anyhow, this is a nice pattern with fun details, really quick and easy to sew. It feels lovely on even if I am not sure about the silhouette. Will have to figure out a good pairing. I'll be finished this planned capsule soon and then on to my favourite thing -- more dresses!
