I've been really into feminine blouses this season. I'm not entirely sure why. I think I just like them as a way to make skinny jeans and boots look a bit more adult. I bought two from Old Navy that I love before I began looking for a pattern. After all JoAnns does not carry a lot of garment fabric that I like but they always have translucent prints that would be perfect for this type of blouse. I didn't find a big 3 pattern that was quite what I wanted though.
Colette Jasmine pattern. Now if you remember my Easter dress you may know that while I find Colette patterns lovely I do not posess a body that fits her size chart well. This is OK but it tends to give me pause when considering buying an expensive pattern. This one was near perfect though so I took a chance. OK took a chance and then to make the flat rate shipping worth while ordered the Ginger skirt as well. I haven't even done a muslin of it yet though. Soon I hope.
Second Rate Sorbetto fabric. I'm not sure why I bought it. Its not a color I usually go for and I certainly had no plan in mind but for some reason I simply had to have it. Now I glad I did. I hope to make some more of these. Yes its a bit distinctive but who really cares that much. I also hope to make a black Ginger to go with it.
