Description

This has become my favourite blouse (Burda Magazine 8/2011 # 138) as it is so comfortable and cool. It was quite easy to sew mainly because the fabric was wonderful to work with. It is a Japanese cotton and the most beautiful quality. I am going to be making this blouse again and even thinking of making it into a dress by extending the hem length. I really like the neckline and gentle gathers coming off it.

Material Notes

Japanese cotton form Lisa’s Fabrics, Southport, Gold Coast. And back neckline buttons from my Mum’s button collection.

      Thank-you so much. I think this top would suit your applique technique around the neck line. I have made this top again and it is so easy really and so easy to wear. Since looking at your applique tut, my mind has been busy, so I will let you know what I come up with. Applique has always been my favourite embellishment. I have made quite a few applique quilts over the years.

      Thank-you for your sweet comments. I love florals. That particular fabric was a beautiful cotton and so easy to sew. It looked like a voile but was just a good quality cotton. A lucky find.
