Nearest the pin – Polka Dot Mara

By 13/08/2014Mara-contest

I’m loving all the gorgeous Mara blouses and dresses I’ve seen so far on the big Mara blog tour. This pattern really is fantastic – I made a version that is appropriate for winter weather we are having here in Australia. I’m Renee and I blog at Nearest the Pin.

I didn’t make any changes to the pattern, except that I didn’t add elastic to the sleeve cuffs. For the cooler weather I like that the sleeves sit a bit further down on the hands. I made a size 4 for my 3 year old, so that this Mara can be layered over long sleeve t-shirts to keep warm.

It’s clear from all the amazing versions of the Mara on this tour, just what a versatile pattern this is. With different sleeve and length options, the Mara really gives you the opportunity to use your imagination. Also, as you can see here, Mara can be sewn up for all the different seasons.

Thanks so much for the opportunity to be part of the tour Marte!
