Loralie Blouse

loralie blouse 1

This blouse was made using just 2 metres of fabric that was on “Sale” from Quilters Dream in Andover.¬† Using my current favourite blouse pattern (combination McCalls 2797 & 6438) I have made a short sleeve version. This time I have piped the princess seams, sleeve hems, collar and front edges in a 1/8″ Black¬† & White gingham fabric.

Unfortunately I was not able to “fussy cut” the design so that the chairs on the collar are right way up. As I could not find any buttons the correct shade of Bright Pink I have covered my own with scraps of fabric. I took a little time to match the design on the button cover to that of the front so that they blend in well. Can you spot them?
