Hamilton, New Ze...
I had this vintage gingham that my grandmother gave to me before she passed away that I was determined to use it – however I didn’t want it to look too country-western so I decided to make this simple one shouldered blouse out of it. I originally had some vintage lace trip I was going to use too but I needed 3.40m for the frill but I didn’t quite have enough so I found some cream crocheted ribbon at the haberdashery which I used instead, and I think was better in the end. I made it an inch bigger at the side seams than I normally would so I didn’t have to bother putting in a zip. All up it took me about half a day to make – I cut out the pattern and material the night before and then by lunchtime the next day I had a new top!
