My fall sewing list includes a floral blouse. A couple of weeks ago, during Peter’s MPB Day, I purchased an autumnal floral from Chic fabrics. It’s a cotton-lycra blend.
The collar came from a blouse in Burdastyle 9/14. Unfortunately, the blouse, as drafted, has a peplum. I don’t have anything against peplums, per se, but waistline seams make my skin crawl. I just hate them. So, I frankenpatterned the collar onto another Burstyle blouse, this one being a princess seam, raglan sleeve blouse. The sleeve is super narrow, which works because my fabric has a lot of stretch to it. I like the tunic length, since I want to wear it under big sweaters and have it peek out the bottom.
I also made a black denim A-line skirt, which is something I have been wanting for a while. It’s a pretty basic design. I lined it in self fabric, and stiffened the hem with several rows of decorative stitching.
