I saw this wonderful owl-fabric designed by Lotta Bruhn, a Swedish designer. I immediately fell in love with it, but since my shelves were pretty packed with fabric I decided to put on my shopping straitjacket. So it took a while, but then I bought it anyway. About the same time I saw this gorgeous new Farbenmix pattern, which is available for adults as well, that I wanted to try. I thought that an entire garment of that owl-fabric might be a little to much, so I combined it with a bright turquoise fabric.
I made this model with little puff sleeves with white lace elastics around the sleeves. I actually made two similar models at the same time, so there is a longsleeved without the puffs coming along, but since we had +30C/85F yesterday I thought that there really was no hurry in finishing that one. The fabric is cotton interlock, which actually makes it a bit thicker than a regular t-shirt, so I don't think it is suitable for those REALLY hot days.
All in all I am really pleased with the result. Usually I say that it takes three atempts on a new pattern to be able to sell it (since I always make alterations...), but this one I will probably keep as it is.
Oh yes, there is a green version of this fabric as well. So there is a possibility for making matching items for syblings, without being identical!
