Hey there, how are you? I haven't posted much lately but that's because I'm preparing Me-Made-March so I'm saving some new garments for this challenge :) Still I have two tops to show you and I'm sure you'll understand why I chose this title when you see the first one:
The fabric is called Antique Roses and it's a quilting cotton that reminds me a lot of wallpaper patterns hence the wallflower reference! I should also mention that I've had it for a few months so I'm still following my stash busting oath^^. The design is a Pochée top I had already sewn a few months ago and that I love! The pintuck pleats at the front as well as bust darts give it a nice shape and I'm fond of the narrow shoulders and slightly puffy sleeves. Actually I made another one in a row but I didn't have enough fabric for the pleats so I had to leave them out:
This time the fabric is some flowery lawn I had at a bargain price -there's this local shop where I often buy cheap flowery lawns to find later that they are knock off of expensive Liberty prints^^- 2 years ago. Finally I was able to take a picture of one of my mum's dress variations based on this pattern:
Here I simply added a fake button placket with little ruffles. And yes it's one of my cheap flowery lawns :) My mum told me that some coworkers asked her where she had bought her dress so it got me thinking that such a garment costs 5$x1.5+1$ for the zipper -I've had the golden buttons in my stash for years- so that makes it 8.5$, I LOVE sewing^^! See you soon friends, have a lovely weekend!
