Wrap-around blouses are a must in the summer.
An uncomplicated wrapped blouse with no fastening – just tie it place!
The wrapped blouse is fashionably cropped and creates a lovely, feminine shape.
I had this eyelet embroidered and paisley printed fabric in my stash for quite some time. I knew it was going to be a shirt of some sort for the office, something casual.
Thank you Alina for the inspiration with this pattern. I have managed to reduce my stack of fabrics by three and fill the hangers!
With the fresh knowledge about the pattern, I’m was sewing mine faster then ever. I’ve cut it in less then an hour, then quickly pinned the seams as I already knew their order. I like pinning my pieces while they are still fresh cut and lying flat on the table.
Another half an hour was reserved for sewing all the front, back, under sleeve and shoulders seams. All I had to do is set in the collar, sleeves and sew the hems.
I love fast projects with happy endings!
A great source for linen and cotton is where I got this gorgeous fabric
I just had to buy the same print in blue and will probably transform it into a dress.
Every time I visit the JoAnn store I can’t help myself with getting just a little bit of fabric. This time it was this colorful cotton for a shirt. A little Christmas-sy so I added an off white ribbon, instead of the red satin like for the presents.
