My first version of Oolong in a cotton voile. details on making it can be found here.
Do you ever get obsessed with a sewing pattern ? I have been a little nuts over Collette’s Oolong pattern lately. At the moment I am working on my third version in purple velvet. I love this pattern because it so easy to customize.
Here is the second version made in stretch doubleknit. Details on making it in stretch fabric can be found here. I used bias band facings instead of facings, made a short puffed sleeve and gave this pattern more of a forties feel.
Stay tuned to see my purple velvet version which will have added godets on the skirt. I’m just finishing it up. I think that will probably be my last Oolong for awhile. Enough already!
Have a great sewing week.
Today was the first day of school for my three older children. My son is a senior now in high school. I can’t believe it!
