Peanut butter and honey

Peanut butter and honey


Peanut butter and honey…  I just love the name given to this fabric.  It’s a sheer cotton voile from Tessuti (now sold out) which has been in the stash for several years.  I still love this fabric as much as the day when I purchased it… I wish that was the case for all the fabric I buy!


This is another Aeolian and it’s actually one of my favourites.  Am I allowed to have favourites?  When it’s light and cool to wear without being see through and the fabric makes me smile, then I think it’s earnt it’s favourite status.  In fact, I like this woven boxy tee so much I’ve sewn another cotton voile version in a totally different print and colourway.  I’m happily addicted to the Aeolian pattern and very pleased to be sewing up my stash!


The Aeolian pattern is designed for knits, but it’s not a great leap to make it out of a woven.  The changes I made to accommodate the change in fabric type:

  • I bound the neckline so the binding was a facing
  • I eliminated the back facing
  • I included a double fold hem


Interested in some more peanut butter and honey action?  Amy from sew Amy sew made a Mathilde Blouse and Tessuti featured a peanut butter and honey dress (Vogue 1152) on their blog in October 2010.  Did I mention that this fabric has been in the stash for a while?
