I sewed up this Springfield yesterday with Nani Iro double gauze I bought at Finch.
I’ve been seeing a lot of the other print I liked at the shop, and was having a little buyer’s remorse because it looks so nice. This came out just like my mock-up, but I wasn’t entirely sold. It also obviously fits differently than the rayon, and is a lot stiffer than the other Nani Iro DG I’ve used in the past. I think it’s growing on me though, as I’ve already worn it a few times. Also, this one got a crazy response on Instagram. I think it’s the amazing shade of blue catching everyone’s eyes.
The only change I made to this version was having to take the front waist in about 3/4″ on each side.
I’ll definitely be making more Springfields! Next up though, Rachel’s t-shirt, and maybe altering some stuff that isn’t fitting quite right. I also have denim on the way for some Ginger Jeans shorts, an Appleton wrap top kit, and my eyes on the Emerson pants from True Bias (maybe with some of the marimekko linen). And of course, I still have a bunch of other fabric to work my way through.
