That is, cutting out several garments at one time so I can make the most of the fabric and eliminate waste.
So I cut this sweet little number when I was laying out my linen shirt
The pattern was in a bundle that I received from a lovely local lady that was clearing out her stash.
I love the neckline, I thought it had an Asian feel and I remembered I had the left over Sakura blossoms from Lidia's dress
The stems can be carefully snipped to the style you require, then ironed in place (with a Goddess cloth) and I like to topstitch with co-ordinating thread.
The blouse has beautiful finishing, with arm facings (which I interfaced and top stitched) an inclosed seam shawl neck collar and yoke self facings.
The button is a painted MoP sent to me by my dear friend Justine
I really like the flower, it makes me feel happy.
When I wear it, it feels like Summer. I like to wear it with my new shorts.
The fabric is comfy and the style is floaty and cool to wear.
This was a lovely sew that was a lot more time consuming then I thought it would be but I like that!
I made a cutting mistake and only cut two front yokes from the linen instead of four so I used poplin. It isn't washing as well so I wish I hadn't.
I am not sure I would make the other Views, maybe the rolled sleeves but the long sleeved version was super poofy.
It is still a little big on Tildy which is always a good thing.
#ninjacutting for the win!
