Wardrobe Sewing Challenge – A blouse for Leona
Could it be that Portland has the highest bycicle participation in the states that I had my eyes on this beautiful Tara Lawn cotton from Liberty of London?
I loved it when i was out searching for Leona’s B-day tunic but passed on it then. I decided to snatch it up atBolt for a japanese top that i want to sew for myself and after cutting it there was even enough left to get a blouse for Leona. I love Oliver+S designs and had sewn the 2:2 blouse in a short sleeve version before. But now that it is getting colder, Leona really needs some nice long sleeve versions. So here it is with light weight denim detailing.
Just after i had proclaimed to do a japanese sewing challenge that i tackled an adorable pattern from Jenny Gordy from wikstenmade featured in Stitch magazine. And it definitely tested my limits even though it’s categorized as ‘simple’. And it’s not a difficult sewing pattern but rather a tale of what happens when you choose to not measure yourself. But more to that later as i will try my first raffle as i will gift away the tulip skirt in size medium/large to someone who comments on this particular post. And just to wet your mouth click here to see the skirt being sewn by others.
