Autumn Liberty Blouse

I'm thinking that Grumbles is looking so snazzy in her new Liberty blouse that maybe, just maybe, I should make one for myself!

Project Details
Pattern: Blouse #15 from Ottobre Magazine 1/2005
Fabric: 80cm of Liberty Tana Lawn in Wiltshire Red from Tessuti Fabrics
Notions: 42cm of elastic for neckline

This is the same pattern as the other blouse I made up for Grumbles. On this one, however, I didn't elasticise the sleeves, nor put any ribbon detail on the yoke gathering. Such a simple, sweet blouse that really shows off the fabric, and man does it look good with a pair of black cords and boots.

Yep, gotta make one for me, and soon!

  6. You really can't go wrong with Liberty, and if you want to make your own version then go for it!

  7. Awesome! I found a dress at Goodwill the other day made from this exact fabric. I knew it felt super luxurious but I had no idea it was Liberty!!

  8. Yep, you need to make one for yourself too. And in a Liberty print too... of course. Can't top the delicious feel and look of their fabrics.
