Behind The Scenes – The Ava Blouse Wearable Toile #1

Hi everyone,

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!
