London, United K...
I had cut the parts of Jennifer pattern a long time ago but I wasn’t too enthusiatic about it, nor the fabric which I found slightly tacky.
At the end of June, I went to see the My Bloody Valentine playing a gig at the Roundhouse in London. The front woman, Bilinda Butcher, was wearing a beautiful blouse with a pleated ‘bib’. I decided to apply the idea to the Jennifer pattern. The mistake for me was that I had cut the front neck inset(see last picture) and it was difficult to sew it back to the front part. So next time, if I ever reproduce the blouse (uhmm crepe fabric would be great) I would redraft the neck line(a straighter curve rather than a plunging one)before cutting the fabric.
The gig was great and so was Bilinda Butcher’s melodic voice over the overwhelming wall of sound
