Sewing the Familiar Pavlova

A meter of purple cotton jersey, which missed the inspiration branches when it fell out of the fabric tree and into my stash last year, suddenly uttered the word ‘Pavlova‘ to me.

A familiar pattern sewn once before would be the perfect relief from my last few makes which involved complicated pattern hacks and new-to-me patterns. Not to mention a perfect opportunity to drag myself out of a sewing funk (the constraints of my stash diet as I near the end of the year-long challenge has zapped my sew-jo).

Last year I asked the lovely lady behind Red Point Tailor how she adjusted the pattern to make her long sleeved versions and she generously obliged with not just a reply but a post on how to. This was my only change to the pattern and really easy to do.
