A friend of mine liked my Coffee Blouse so much I thought it would be only right to make her one too.
I couldn’t find any similar fabric with an interesting print as mine has, so I chose this ombre satin, with shades of yellow and orange. This time I got to cut the front piece on the bias, as the pattern suggested and the results were more spectacular. The fitting and draping are lovely.
This is me modelling the blouse before I gave it to my friend.
