Hope your week was good and you are gearing up for the weekend!
I am so booked this weekend, going to a vegan festival tomorrow, working, and seeing friends.
One friend I saw this past week asked me to help her with her costume for her dance performance at Camp Hollywood this weekend. She's part of the JR LA Shag team and she needed to have a top remade to work with her partner's costume.
She brought in this rayon halter that was super cute and with a few modifications (because the new fabric was cotton) I drafted a pattern off the blouse and was able to make her blouse.
The fabric I got to work with was this cute Hawaiian/Tiki novelty print with these super tan surfer boys!
The blouse turned out so super cute!
This has got to be one of the best collar bands I've ever done! I'm so proud of myself on that thing!
I love the buttons. They have a coconut feel.
This thing had a lot of details: sleeve cuff, collar band, button casing, front and back darts, back yoke. So much for half a shirt.
I lined the fabric up on the back yoke so the 3 surfer boys were in the center ;)
Here is the blouse in all it's finished glory! Ain't it cute!!!
I am really happy with how this turned out and so was she! It wasn't a simple project because of all the details, but it didn't take more than a day and a half of casual sewing to do.
Okay everyone! Letting you all know my latest pattern, The Leigh-Ann 1930s dress is on its way to me from the printer, so paper requests will go out hopefully by the end of next week.
I gotta get back to sewing!
