Since realising that I didn’t have much me-made clothing I could wear on a regular basis, I had been feeling inspired to complete a UFO (unfinished object) that’s been hanging around for a while. This would also give me another blouse to wear during May at work.
There isn’t too much to say about this project, as it’s the fourth time I’ve made this pattern. I’m really pleased with the fabric choice on this one though. It’s not a colour I’d usually choose, and although I thought the fabric pattern looked a little like flock wallpaper, I think it looks really striking made up as blouse.
I feel like I’m getting better at imagining fabric and patterns together, and my awareness of clothes around me is growing. In the same way that playing music has improved my ear for listening to music, I think sewing is developing an interest in fashion that I haven’t had before. I love flicking through blogs to see what other people are making, and browsing the web for inspiration for my future makes.
Once I figure it out, I’ll add a favourite blogs page to my site, so you can enjoy them too.
