I have just started preparing the Trapeze pattern.  I have been meaning to buy this for a while and on a lovely trip to London in late April, I paid my first visit to Liberties and bought it – along with some very lovely fabric. As always, I have traced the pattern on architecture tracing paper in my size transferring all the markings and necessary text. My fabric has soaked for a few hours in the bath to accommodate the shrink factor and is now hung over a clothes maiden – drip drying over the bath.

I am saving my Liberty fabric and am using a very dark blue plain linen to make the sleeveless version… to be continued at weekend!
