Los Angeles, Cal...
I’ve been really digging the handpainted fabrics I’ve been seeing lately, but my lazy self has once again found an easy way out! I was happy to come across this cotton fabric designed by Marie Kelzer that has the look of hand painting. I used Built By Wendy 3692, adding some lace trim beneath the yoke and around the armholes. I attempted to do some decorative topstitching on the bias binding around the armholes — but look how messy and crooked it turned out! eeesh. I’m just gonna pretend that I meant to do it that way. ;) The pattern didn’t include a belt, but I made one out of the same fabric as the yoke.
