|Adeline featured in Aspiring Designers Challenge|
|Adeline pattern available from Kollabora|
The pattern comes as a downloadable PDF file. While you can get this printed off locally at your favourite print/photocopy shop in large sheets - 2 A0, I opted for printing off the A4 sheets on my own printer and sticking them together. This is the most time consuming part of constructing this garment, but I don't mind it at all. Somehow, you get to know the pattern very well and Pearl's instructions of putting the pattern together are very clear and easy to follow.
|"Adeline" scraps even look artistic!|
"Adeline" can be made in light woven or stretch fabrics - something with a bit of a drape looks great. I chose an overall patterned fabric, with a very light stretch. The only variation I made to the pattern was that because the fabric had such a light stretch, I cut the neck and armhole bands on the bias. (This instruction is given in the pattern when using woven fabrics. )
