Flower Power :)

I fell in Love with this fabulous flower fabric in St Peterburg! At first I wanted to make a pair of pants, but then I realize I could sew both a jacket and a shorts! I do love blazers with peplum. The blazer is #134 from 05/2018, but I didn’t find the pattern on the web. The shorts was very easy to sew and the fit is good. It feels like wearing a mini-skirt :) I made a knotted top instead of a body. At first I thought it was a bit tricky to sew, but when I found out that the front has a double layer it made sense. Cheers and Happy Holiday!

Material Notes

Cotton and Jersey for the top.

    What a fab outfit, Ellen. Perfect for spring and summer and I think you could wear it just about anywhere! I’d probably avoid eating spaghetti bolognaise in it, though!! :)
