Boats on the Green has defiantly proven to be a favourite of the summer. If you haven’t yet managed to get your hands on this fabric the sun is still yet to shine and we have a small amount of this fabric left for you.
This is a pure linen which is great for those long summer days on holiday or perfect for a casual evening look. This fabric has been most popular made up into relaxed trousers and fresh summer skirts. Boats on the Green has worked so well as separates as there are so many colours to mix and match tops to.
A fantastic easy trouser pattern that would be suitable for this fabric is Butterick 6223. A wide leg floaty trouser offers air and movement which is just want you want from a garment on a hot day. Kwik 2807 would also be a lovely pattern to work with if you didn’t want such a wide leg trouser.
And if you are skirt obsessed like myself very easy Vogue pattern V9061 is always a winner in my eyes along with Sew la Di Da’s Miss Maguire skirt pattern. Both patterns are an easy sew and looks great with either a plain solid red or yellow top. If you are feeling adventurous pair your skirt with a bold jersey sailor stripe top!
