When I bought the lovely white eyelet fabric from Fabric Godmother I also bought 2m of this
and I was very happy to get some thread to match.
I wouldn’t normally wear such a bright shade of green, but it’s diluted quite a bit by all the white flowers, so it doesn’t appear quite so vibrant. I’m not too sure about the cotton Poplin yet. Its quite a crisp fabric and at the moment feels a bit stiff, I’m hoping it will soften with washing and wearing. Otherwise its a gorgeous fabric and pretty good value for money, I’ve got two lovely tops for the price of £28, which lets be honest, you can’t really get a decent top on the high street now a days for that.
I’m also very pleased that this blouse only took me 6.5 hours to make. That does not include the cutting out of the fabric. I’m really happy as the first blouse I made back in January took me about 12.5 hours (not including the cutting) so i’ve come down to just under half the time. And although I am happy to take it a little slower now a days, I am also happy to know that I can make one of these blouses in a day.
Hi Sarah, can’t see how to email you – the dress pattern is a free downloadable pattern form Tina Givens. Think it’s called Priscilla http://www.sewtinagivens.com/#!free-bee-patterns/c20vk
Thank You Poppy. X
