I’ve been working on the Ava Blouse, my next PDF sewing pattern. I obviously have to make a few toiles to check for fit and test out how the pattern prints out etc. before I can send it over to my testers.
I used this pretty yellow ditsy floral fabric that has been in my stash for ages and ages. I knew it would get well worn even as a wearable toile because …….
a. it’s floral
b. it’s a nice cotton
c. the colours are in my colour palette
d. its pretty
e. I can wear it layered under my pinafores etc.
This version I made is the long sleeve with a dainty necktie, but there will also be a short sleeve option with pussy bow tie. I am hoping to include more options in my patterns and this one will include 2 sleeves and 2 neckites. I will of course share the short sleeve version with you …… so watch this space!
