In a bid to not give in to winter, I wanted to share a make in this Lithuanian linen fabric from our collection. The Bantam top sewing pattern by Merchant and Mills is from their amazing work book. This top is lovely to wear and linen is just right, especially in the heat. I love that this sewing pattern fits me well, a lot of vest styles are usually too low at the chest. The bias binding on the neckline is a little fiddly, it's worth taking the time as you get this perfect shape that sits beautifully. Please excuse the bra straps and a creased look but it's real!
