This is my first go at the New Look 6808 pattern.
This fabric is some sort of cotton blend. It’s quite shifty and loves to shred the moment it’s cut. Honestly, I think it’s most likely a low quality fabric, but it was too pretty to resist. I’m not sure how long the blouse will last, I tried to take extra precautions to prevent unraveling (french seams wherever possible along with serging) and with all of this, I think I’ll still be washing it by hand.
