Not So Sure About This
As you can see I've sewn up the piece of Liberty cotton that I bought at Tissus Reine, Paris. I loved it as a piece of material. I love the explosion of jewel colours. The feel of the material is heavenly. I wanted something tunic length so when I saw Inkstain's blog rendition of this Burda blouse in silk, I thought it might work to show off this material. We e ell ..I'm not sure. Half way through pin fitting the side seams and not get them to sit properly I had a real bozo-the-clown moment, pussycat bow and all. Nevertheless, being a stubborn creature who does not like the term 'UFO' I persisted. It is extremely rare for me not to finish a garment, even if it goes straight to charity afterwards! Well I added a couple of bust darts and finished the blouse then took it out very early the next morning to photograph it.
I like it, sort of. I'm not sure what it needs, or if the busy-ness of the material is too much of a good thing. Do not fear, it is not destined for the charity bin. I just have to find a way to wear it. I'll put it in the back of the closet and let it marinate, as my DD call it.
It may see the light of day again. Sometime.
