London, United K...
Not technically a bowling shirt but by the time I’d hand-embroidered the monogram and added some piping to the yoke, it was as good as! I made this for one of my favourite sewing challenges yet. A wonderful meet up of the ‘Spoolettes’ at the Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes in London.
Everyone looked so fabulous.
The pattern came together quite quickly. I did an FBA, and added a little to the waist but that’s all.
More deets over at the usual place
red cotton fabric, black piping, black embroidery thread, red sewing thread, 3 vintage buttons.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
