It's the first week of our Literary Sewing Circle featuring Premeditated Myrtle. Have you found a copy yet? Have you started reading? If so, how are you finding the opening chapters?
Today's inspiration is going to look at some of the characters in this story; we'll find ideas based on their names and personalities.
We have to begin, of course, with Myrtle! To make something inspired by her, you might take just the name and try out the Myrtle dress by Seamwork. Although it looks like this pattern has been archived...
If you are more inclined to make something Myrtle might find useful, take a look at this Myrtle Crochet Cowl, great for sneaking out on cold nights.
Now on to Miss Judson! Style Arc has a knit Ada Top that would be comfy to lounge in.
And Duana DIY has a pretty peplum top and dress pattern called The Ada in two size ranges: I could see this peplum top with long sleeves being worn over a long a-line skirt to look just like a governess ;)
Perhaps Aunt Helena could inspire us. When she comes to dinner with Myrtle's family, she turns up in a silver Paris gown. Could you make the Helena Wrap Dress by Just Patterns in a silvery fabric to compare?
Of course we can't forget Peony! This clever cat plays a big role in the story. There are many ways to bring Peony in.
You could try the Peony Dress by Seamwork. It's a pretty dress with a detachable belt. Make it in some novelty cat print cotton and you're right on theme.
