Invigorate your casual wardrobe with the breezy Paloma. The Paloma is as comfortable as your most-loved t-shirt, but adds a shapely, elegant flair. The Paloma has a flat front and gathering at the sides. It can be easily sewn on any sewing machine, and is perfect for your first (or hundredth) sewing project using knits. This pattern includes three variations - top, tunic or dress - and can be made with short- or 3/4-length sleeves.
The instructions provide a tutorial for sewing with knits using a conventional sewing machine. Detailed tips on sewing with knits are available at SewLiberated.com/sewing-with-knits. Finally, we offer complete kits with the fabric and Steam-a-Seam for making this pattern at SewLiberated.com/kits.
I'm Meg McElwee, the owner and designer of Sew Liberated, an indie pattern shop, as well as the author of the books Sew Liberated and Growing Up Sew Liberated. I love simple, woodsy beauty in both pattern and fabric. I try to infuse my designs with that rustic-chic aesthetic.
