pattern review | cali faye valley blouse

Wednesday, October 12, 2016

A couple things have happened since we spoke last. I made a new blouse & cut bangs. I have the best fake bangs and decided to just go for it. It's hard to say no when your mom can cut hair! Back to the blouse...

First of all, I've always wanted to work with swiss dot fabric. I never knew what it was called and when I saw that the Cali Faye version of this blouse was made using swiss dot, the fabric was calling my name. This navy version is from Etsy of course! This fabric is still light enough that I can wear it on a warmer day.

This was a very easy blouse to sew up. I cut the fabric and was finished sewing in just a few hours. The directions were very clear and easy to follow. Like the pattern suggests I used french seams (which I love!) so everything is nice and tucked away. I now need one in every single color. I need to start making shirts that I can wear everyday because my closet is lacking in the cute blouse department. If you have a favorite shirt pattern, send it my way!!
