More blue gingham! I still have tons of this stuff, so I used the JJ Blouse pattern to make my very own feminine western style shirt. To give it the western look i added triangular shapes to the front and back and used pearl snaps instead of buttons. The sleeves end with elastic for a fuller look rather than the cuffs included in the pattern. I recently bought the book “Embroidered Effects” from Sublime Stitching and decided this shirt would be the perfect place to begin using embroidery. The front has a morning glory ( my favorite flower!) on each triangle, and the back has a vine with daisies (all embroidery patterns from Sublime Stitching, so much fun!). I recently wore this shirt at a music festival and had a great time dressing like a cowgirl.
Blue gingham, embroidery floss, and pearl front snaps.
