Experimental blouse.

I don’t really like this fabric, but my grandma gave it to me and I wanted to try and make my one fitted yoke pattern. I also experimented with the rolled edge on the overlocker I got for my birthday/Christmas.

I made the matching buttons out of shrink plastic. I’m really pleased with how they came out, I’ll definitely be doing it again :)

It fits quite well but I’m not sure if I’ll wear it much, it’s not really my style. Maybe I will in summer.

    It looks wonderful on you. I wouldn’t write it off just yet. And those shrinky-dink buttons? BRILLIANT.

      Thank you so much! And yes, though I do say so myself, the buttons were a good idea. I’ll be doing it loads more from now on :)

    I was wondering how you got such a perfect match for the buttons. What a fab idea. This is so pretty. Looking forward to seeing more of your experiments! :-)

    If this is your idea of experimental, I propose that you experiment a lot more. It fits you great, good work! :)
