The original culotttes pattern (from the Japanese sewing magazine, Female) is unlined. The floral fabric is kinda translucent and it really needs to be lined.
The peasant blouse is pattern number 7 from the Japanese sewing book, I L<3ve Liberty Print. Instead of doing gathers at the collar (original pattern), I did pleats…
As I don’t want to stick to just purple + gray ribbons and prefer to have more future closure options (eg. buttons), I tacked the ribbons down instead of permanently fixing them to the blouse..
What do you think of these summery styles?
