I’m so pleased with this top. I had this fabric in my stash, I had bought it on sale a while back, and was just waiting for the perfect pattern. I came across other people’s versions and was particularly keen on ’daysofcolour’s’ ‘coral linen blouse’ version. It only took me one afternoon from cutting to wearing…including toddler interuptions, snack break and a load of washing or two in between. Getting the bias binding to overlap properly and meet up with the underarm seam at the same time was very tricky but I think I just had too much seam to incorporate and should have done the bias seam further around. Loving this sewing thing!
