Cotton Lawn Projects!

Inspired by the current sale of Liberty Tana Lawn at TFS, I thought I’d round up some sewing patterns which would look great in Tana Lawn!

Cotton Lawn makes great summer PJs, would make an excellent robe, makes for lovely crisp shirts, and looks especially good when it’s gathered! With that in mind, here’s some ideas which may or may not get your creative juices flowing.

The Huon Shirt and Dress from Muna and Broad is available up to a 64″ bust and a 71.5″ hip

If their sizes are too small for you, Muna and Broad will grade this pattern up to your size for no extra cost.

“Villa with Orange Trees, Nice” by Berthe Morisot

The Block Tee

from Paper Theory Patterns (previously of Dunedin)

A modern, oversized t-shirt, designed to look relaxed and feel easy to wear in a woven fabric.

The body is much wider than a regular t-shirt and the sleeves are longer than normal, sitting just above the elbow, with the angular square armholes being its hallmark feature. The neckline has a hidden binding to complement its minimalist design and the hem turn ups are extra deep to emphasise its boxy silhouette.

The Collins Top from In The Folds (in Sydney) is a loose-fitting trapeze-shaped top designed for woven fabrics. It is A-line in shape, perfect for hot summer days. There’s also a version with sleeves!

“The Garden at Bougival” by Berthe Morisot

The Waikerie Shirt and Dress Collection from Muna and Broad is available up to a 182cm (71.5″) hip

This ‘cup-size flexible’ shirt has multiple views, sleeve-lengths, and even collar options through Patreon.

M&B will grade this pattern up to your size if their size chart is too small to include you.

The Phen Shirt from Pattern Fantastique

Shirt-weight fabrics like washer cotton from The Fine Cloth Company, shirtings from Miss Maude, and linen from Fabric Box would all be great.

The Cornell Shirt from Elbe Textiles (formerly of Christchurch) is a gender-free pattern with a drop shoulders and a classic grandpa collar.

“The Garden at Bougival” by Berthe Morisot

The Bloom Shirt & Dress from Make by TFS comes with options!

With 3 different collar options, just like Muna and Broad, TFS will grade this pattern up to your size if their sizes don’t include you.

Available up to 149.5cm (55.7″) bust and 159.5cm (62.8″) hip

The Cashmerette Springfield is a woven shell top with multiple cup sizes and multiple views.

The Spinifex PJs and Medlow Robe from Muna and Broad

Available in the standard M&B range of 102-162cm bust and 105-182cm hip, these patterns bring ‘classic sleepwear’ and add comfort and functionality for plus-size bodies.
