We interrupt Me Made June to gawp in wonder at someone else's sewing.
The is Emily's "Bee in My Bonnet Blouse". You can read all about it here.
Basically, she traced an existing blouse to make the pattern, then plunged right in to her vintage fabric like Edward Scissorhands: snip, snip, snip: ta da! OK, so maybe there was more to it than that.
All this week I have been grumbling about not being able to find the perfect pattern for a simple t-shirt with pleats at the neck. An anonymous reader pointed me in the direction of an excellent-looking Butterick pattern, and I found another by Kwik-Sew, and both were fine but neither was perfect.
And I have been watching in awe as Miss Dibs whips up dress after dress for MMJ, with an airy comment that she used the top half of one pattern combined with "a rectangle of fabric" to make a maxi dress. Fearless! Fabulous!
And I have come to the conclusion that I need to stop being such a wimp, relying on shop-bought patterns all the time. Surely I have enough experience to draft a simple top?
So... um... watch this space! You can all laugh and point if it all goes horribly wrong! :)
