sewing project number 12: print on print

Self sewn blouse and shorts, Call It Spring heels, Forever 21 blazer

When I saw this fabric I couldn't help but making a matching set. I was at Zara lusting after their printed blouses with similar printed shorts. Same shorts again here but they seem very different to me in this fabric. I had been using cotton for the other pairs so now I have a pair that's of higher quality. This was also my first time sewing with printed fabric. I have to say, I'm pretty satisfied! For the blouse, I used Butterick B5711. I was pleasantly surprised to finally have a pattern that was not only marked as "easy", but was truly simple enough to follow.

  3. Wow, this is amazing!! You are so talented at sewing. Most of projects are free hand or require one pattern piece. That top looks like it would be so expensive! <3
