Almost any pattern would be wonderful in voile. But a few patterns really stand out to me as perfect voile patterns….like the Little Prairie Girl dress from Favorite Things (my friend Mary made a delightful version you can see on her blog.) And when I saw the Beverly Belle pattern from Izzy & Ivy, I knew it had to be made in voile! I’m beyond happy with the result.
The pattern is a little more advanced because each row twists back up. This results in a great twirling shirt. Also since the shirt is very full, it took quite a long time to sew on all the binding along the bottom hem. I opted for pre-made bias. Oh, and the prints I paired together were Coloring Garden (sea) and Little Honey (Meadow). All the voiles are available here.
I’ve got to figure out a way to adapt this for myself. I’m currently thinking I’ll make it as a skirt because I’m afraid a shirt like this would make me look quite pregnant. Do you think it would work as a skirt for a grown-up? 😮
