Belper, United K...
In the name of procrastination I made a blouse (I was supposed to be tidying the house… yuk!)
My aunt bought over 3 large black bin bags of clothes she had worn ranging from some very funky 70s dresses to the more modern. In this bag was a long ankle length dark blue gingham skirt.
Soooo I chopped it up and “harvested” the fabric for making myself a new item of clothing. I originally wanted to make myself a little weekend dress but there wasn’t enough fabric so I decided on a top. I based it on the Simplicity pattern 3835 which I purchased from Dunelm Mill for about 35p a while ago in a sale. I discovered that it had half of the instructions missing. Based on the picture I think the idea was to put elastic in the neckline but I decided against that and drafted this “pixie collar” and my fiancé called it.
I really like this top. Other than my denim skirt most items I make end up in a pile never to be worn again!
I tried to get my new cat to play along in the photos but she got spooked by the trains going past the house. She looks like she has seen a ghost!
