After making my first Lottie blouse that I blogged about in my last post, I couldn’t resist running another one up! The Lottie #2 is made out of this wonderful Liberty print that I bought last week on a whim.
I love the feel of this fabric. It is so smooth to the touch and drapes beautifully – perfect for a pussy bow blouse!
This time I decided to make the sleeveless version so that I could wear it in the summer months too – yes, I’m wishing winter away! I made the collar the same way as I mentioned in my last post but instead of hand stitching the inside seam I stitched in the ditch. To be honest, there was more than enough hand finishing to be done on the bias binding around the armholes!
I made the smallest size this time and I think that the fit is better on me.
I also made my lovely mum a Clemence skirt this week as a ‘Thank you’ for letting me borrow her sewing machine. The good news is that I pick up my own sewing machine from the shop tomorrow – it’s only taken two months for them to fix, but I’m looking forward to having my Brother back! 🙂
I thought it was about time that I tried something new so I’m now working on my vintage pledge and making a muslin for a 1950’s dress – VERY challenging!
