Blue Roses



Do you like my new cropped blouse? It made its debut on Saturday night when I went out dancing but Lola is modelling it today as I'm feeling a bit under the weather. I must say I'm quite pleased with it, this is the first time I've used a pattern block to design my own garment!

  1. Sorry to hear your not feeling well. it must have been that heat wave that bought it on? I Love that little blouse (and the hanger), did you draft it yourself?

    1. Yeah I think it must be the heat, a lot of people have been feeling pretty rubbish lately!

      Yes the blouse is one I drafted myself, I went on a pattern cutting course earlier in the year so I used the block that I got from the course to make the blouse. It was very quick to make up, it has two darts in the shoulders and then two waist darts, if I'd had more fabric I would have made a dress but sadly I didn't.

  2. Gorgeous little cropped blouse - you've chosen such a great fabric for it. I must say too that your coat hanger is one of the prettiest I've ever seen. From where did you get it? Hope that you are feeling better too!

    1. Thank you! The hanger is great isn't it, I got it from an online shop called Thrift-Ola last year.

  3. It's a very pretty blouse, dear Sarah, and I only wish you felt well enough to model it. I care about you and hope you bounce back to 100% very soon. In the meantime, rest and take good care of yourself.
