I think this honeycomb fabric from Kei is my favourite at the moment and somehow it seemed perfect for penguins. Slowly being listed in the shop.
I think the last time I sewed something with lining was for my sisters wedding 4 years ago. And it is slowly coming back to me how much lining tends to annoy me. Actually I think following patterns really annoys me, but I made a muslin yesterday and I just received some lovely silk/linen and some cotton lining in the mail from Tesutti and I'm crossing fingers that this will be quite wearable. The pattern is Butterick 5319 and people like me who live nowhere near a decent fabric shop - Tessuti will send samples! Easy fabric shopping from home.
