Hi sewing friends. I’ve been away from my sewing machine for way too long, and I’m really missing it! It makes me realize that sewing really is therapy. I am dying to sew something soon. In any case, here’s something I made a while back but didn’t share yet.
I love this shirt! I don’t even care that I cut off that poor heron’s head; he was sacrificed in the name of not wasting one square centimetre of this great fabric.
The pattern is the Burda Wrap Blouse, which I have made twice before. The first version, in black crepe, was a favourite, but ultimately too tight — the crepe frayed at the back seam and was irreparable. The second version, in black jersey, is still in heavy rotation.
This third version is a combination of black jersey on the sleeves and back, a crepe print for the front flap, and a plain black viscose woven for the front under-flap.
Just looking at these pictures make me squeeeeee with delight over that fabric! I bought it from Sew Over It last year. I’m afraid it’s long gone from their website, but I’ve still got enough for another garment in my stash. Yay!
And here are some weirdly blown-out photos, but I need to show you my whole outfit, in which I feel like a million bucks. LOL
Thanks for stopping by!
