I say this blouse is made in Liberty lawn. Whether or not that’s really the case, I don’t know. The market stall holder told me it was Liberty, and it certainly has a butter smooth handle, but… I can’t always help suspecting that Liberty probably has tighter control of its stock, than for it to end up on a Birmingham rag market. What do you think?
None of it really matters. All any of us need to know is that this lawn cotton was truly beautiful to work with. A reader recently left a very interesting and truthful comment:
Most sewers, me included, admit to making things that they don’t wear, aren’t happy with the fit, are disappointed in the finishing, etc and yet we keep doing it.
Yes, we keep doing it. Fabrics such as this remind me why. It made me sooooo happy! Here’s a detail of the button I bought from Loop to go with it. Isn’t that just delightful?
This blouse came together like a dream. It’s so easy to wear, too. I’ve worn my previous version (in a very similair colour way) with skirts and jeans and it works fabulously with both. That blouse has been in and out of the washing machine – a sure sign of sewing success.
Have I tempted you to buy The Afternoon Blouse yet? And, no. I don’t know the designer from Adam!
