Description

I love making blouses and when I saw this fabric on Tessuti Fabrics online store, I purchased it straight away to make yet another blouse. Then I spent hours going through nearly every Burda magazine I have since 2010 to find the perfect pattern for this lovely fabric. If you have sewn with Liberty, you will understand why I searched so thoroughly for the right pattern. Liberty is so beautiful to sew with and whilst it is expensive, I consider this an investment fabric. Eventually I settled on #112, 9 /2012 because I wanted a classic pattern that would serve me well for years. It is a lovely pattern and the fit is perfect for my liking and it has all the classic blouse features. Well worth the extra effort and well worth it for the Liberty fabric.

Material Notes

Liberty of London cotton lawn from Tessuti Fabrics.

    You won’t believe this but I just got back from tessuti with the last 2 meters of this fabric. I logged on and then saw your gorgeous blouse in the same fabric! Great taste… You have done a fantastic job yet again. :)

      Wow, thanks Annie. Fancy you buying the last of this fabric. I love it and for some reason I bought too much so I am now going to make a short sleeved top with the rest. I can’t wait to see what you make with yours as 2 meters is heaps as it is so wide.

    Hi Schnui – Be prepared to be asked repeatedly “where did you get that gorgeous shirt?” An absolute stunner!

    This is really an investment garment! It goes well with many things and it can add pop and interest in your outfits. I like that it is kind of statement piece but still very classic. Sure it was well worth the effort and the money to have this fantastic blouse in your closet!!

      Thank-you liliv, I am wearing it right now with pants that I didn’t even think would work. Seems it works with nearly all my pants and skirts.

      Thanks kisses. I actually bought too much fabric so I am thinking that a Grainline Scout tee might evolve from the leftovers.

      Thanks Mary. I wish I could be as productive as you but I spend way too much time deciding what I will sew with every piece of fabric I buy. I rarely buy fabric with a project in mine. I am just too addicted to having to buy lovely fabric all the time- no control!!!
