Lawn Datura Blouse
Wednesday, June 15, 2016
Happy Wednesday! I'm going to keep today's post short and sweet! I have a big backlog of finished garments, just need to get photographs of the rest of them! Today I want to share my most recent Datura blouse. You can see my previous Daturas here and here.
The Datura Blouse Pattern is by Deer & Doe.
This past January, a few of us got together and attended a retreat at Stitch Supply Co. in Altoona, WI (I'm teaching there in October, join me!). Anna cut a garment out of this lawn (a Datura too), and sent the leftover fabric home with me. Since this pattern doesn't use too many big pieces, I was able to squeeze one out of it too! I ended up piecing the facings, but it's all enclosed, so it worked out just fine.
Fabric is from Mesa by Alexia Marcelle Abegg for Cotton & Steel.
Instead of doing buttons and button holes on the back of the blouse I used snaps! Quick and easy, and they matched the metallic detail on the fabric perfectly!
I've already gotten a lot of wear out of this top. It's worked as a great neutral since the print is pretty minimal. I could definitely stand to make some true basics with more solid or near solid fabrics. I love working with and wearing lawn, so this was a fun and satisfying project for me!
