Bay Area, Califo...
This is the first garment I’ve made. It’s not really a style I would wear, but I needed to try something. It’s way too blousy for my figure, and I am not one to wear large floral prints! But I had to give it a try. You can’t really see it in the pictures, but I shirred the shoulders to give it a little bit of shape, and I also made a wide belt that buttons on the side.
Some quilting fabric I had in the attic and some buttons. Since this was my first project, I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on fabric.
