An age and a half ago, I spontaneously bought some gorgeous vintage poly-cotton online without giving much thought to the fact that it was a very limited 1 yard long. Luckily, when One Week, One Pattern came along back in September, it inspired me to finally put my fabric to good use! Using this Coletterie tutorial, I just about managed to squeeze a cropped Hawthorn out of it.
Sometimes it really pays off to be patient and hoard fabric for the ‘right’ make. In this case I think my fabric and pattern combination is a match made in heaven. I even found the perfect vintage buttons for it in my stash. Overall, I’m smitten with the 1950s vibe of this cropped blouse.
As always, more information and pictures available on my blog – A Stitching Odyssey.
