This is Linden number five (see one, two, three & four) and, in my books, the fabric is rather unique. The bolt was labelled – slubby organic 100 % cotton. I love the texture, I adore the colour and it has a really nice weight which gives warmth but it still has some drape. I took advantage of a 25% off floor stock sale at Rathdowne Fabrics a few weeks ago and I brought enough for two tops. Yes, you’ll be seeing this fabric again!
Pattern: Grainline’s Linden Sweatshirt (pdf & paper)
Fabric: Slubby organic 100% cotton knit from Rathdowne Fabrics
Alterations: Shortened the sleeves by a total of 2″ (5 cm). Added length to the neckband and the cuffs to account for the lack of stretch in the fabric. Left off the hem band. Added 3″ to the length of the front and back pieces and secured the one inch bottom hem with a twin needle.
Accessories: Sophie Digard scarf from Scarlet Jones and shoes from Habbot
Location: Eastern Suburbs, Melbourne
