I wanted to try making an Amanda blouse, so I was keeping my eyes open for some good fabric. When I saw this rosy beauty, it was perfect.
The making of this went pretty well, but I feel like there were some parts/steps missing in the pattern. Maybe I’m just not good at figuring out these things yet! But I improvised and it turned out quite good! The neckline is bigger than anticipated, and the shirt is much shorter than I thought. But, it looks good with high-waisted pants/skirts, which I happen to have a lot of, so no big deal.
A pretty rose-colored silk chiffon.
