Having completed the grey trousers just recently (see below), I decided to cut into this lovely fabric and have a go at a new pattern Palmer Pletsch "The Perfect Fit Top".
Here are the pattern details:-
|MISSES’ TOPS AND BELT: Fitted tops have front and back darts and back button closure; top B has self-faced sleeve; top C has gathered sleeve with sleeve band; top D has front pleats; top E has front pleats and gathered bubble sleeve; belt is included.|
|NOTIONS: Thread; Top A, B, C, D, E - Five 5/8" Buttons.|
|SUGGESTED FABRICS: Lightweight Cotton • Lightweight Linen Blends • Challis • Crepe de Chine • Silk Faille • Charmeuse • Silk Jacquard. Additional Fabric may be needed to match stripes, plaids or one-way design fabric.|
|Combinations: BB(8-10-12-14), F5(16-18-20-22-24)|
|Back with button covered poppers|
|M6435 next project|
This is quite an easy little blouse to sew and one of the nice things about the facings is that it captures the sleeve head seams inside so is not visible as you can see below.
The back has button closure from top to bottom and when I was going through my button boxes, one which used to belong to my mother I founds some lovely peach coloured buttons, but they were very small so decided to use the button to top a popper.
I am really pleased with the end result and I think it will go really well with my grey pants I made recently.
My next project is M6435 see above - the blogger softwear seems to be playing up and I can't place it below :-( a pattern sent over to my by my friend Anita.
Yesterday my D Mike and I went to purchase some fabrics so I could make my Roman blinds for the flat. I wanted to select something that would pick out the lovely turquoise blue from the glass worktop and found just the right fabric. This will be used for the kitchen and lounge windows as the layout is open plan.
For the bedroom I wanted fabric for the blind and some for the headboard. I had decided I wanted a natural fibre and found the perfect fabric. It is pure raw silk and is just fantastic. I have pulled the colours in the silk for the blind fabric, so just need to purchase some foam to pad a board - once I have made all the items, including some cushions and a throw, I will post them here on my blog.
Looks like I will be sewing Roman blinds at the flat - all 4 of them hey ho.....
