The mortmain

I love the Mortmain by Gather patterns. Good fit, beautifully written and quick to rustle up too. I found a fabulous Alexander Henry fabric at fabrics galore. I have used black silk to pipe a flat fold instead of piping around the waist seams, arm holes and neck live and love how well it works, just a final fit and it’s done. Planning another in a fabulous Kate Spade inspired fabric, it kind if hurts the eyes as it’s slightly out if focus but I love it all the same (the same fabric oddly as on Gather site from Fabrics Galore).  I have inverted the pleats, so not as on the pattern and added 5 inches to the hem – just to give a slightly longer below the knee version.
