the product of a mistake
The blouse I mentioned yesterday is up on the wall to dry. I usually don't dry clothes hanging on fancy ribbons on my livingroom walls, but when they're beeing photographed I do make exceptions.
I was cutting fabric for a dress, but suddenly found out that I've copied the wrong pattern! So the fabric became the back of this instead. The rest of it is mainly scraps.
It's made of an Ottobre pattern from 1/2008 and it's called "Maya blus"
I've never made anything like this before, and is happy with the result. The patterns isn't that complicated. Even I, a beginner, completed the blouse without any problems. I only had to redo one buttonhole.
The fabrics are by Amy Butler and Heather Bailey. The edging is a purple batik. I thought about using a dark brown or a hot pink fabric for the edging, but as for most projects; I ended up with the first one I thought about.
