I was invited to take part in a project involving Burdastyle and Westminster Liberty Art Fabrics.
It was really tough to pick one of the many fabulous fabrics available from the Westminster Liberty Art Prints but when my choice came through in the post I knew I had made the right decision, I love it! The print is really bold and vibrant and I think this slouchy Blouse shows it off so well.
There wasn’t quite enough fabric to fit all the pattern pieces on the right way up, so instead of having an upside down piece I chose to do the collar/lapel as a seperate sewn-on facing in a plain cream cotton and did the same with the button straps. I think this ended up looking really great and being a nice feature of the blouse.
I’m really proud of my neat button holes in coral thread and kind of wish I had done all of the topstitching in this thread as well. Also really loving the big clear gold rimmed buttons.
