I made this little blouse as a test for a 1980s Vogue dress pattern that I’d fallen for and purchased in a late night blur – I’m really happy with the result and so glad I made the effort to match up the fabric patterns. The pattern is now definitely on my sewing list as a dress! More photos (sorry they’re so dark – we’ve really not had a great summer!) on my blog along with more sewing details.
Liberty Tana Lawn – I bought this fabric as a remnant, and it looked like a very good quality cotton but I wasn’t sure it was Liberty… Yay, I’ve checked and it is!
