Trying to ease my way back into the sewing room. Made this sweet shirt for Carolin which she loves. I do too!
Pattern is the Family Reunion Dress/Shirt pattern by Oliver & S. Great pattern and great fit. I made a size 6. Carolin is quite tall and thin so I worried it would be too wide, but it is fine. It's an easy pattern to follow and makes a classy little shirt. Does anyone use the term 'blouse' anymore? Because that is what my mom would call it.
The photos are terrible quality - quickly snapped at the bus stop this morning. You can see a bit of the detail in the shot below. The fabric is a thrifted vintage print. I've had it on my shelf for years and about a month ago my friend pulled it off the shelf remarking at how much she loved it. I contemplated giving it to her but I decided to use it myself! There is still a piece left though so you are welcome to it, Jen! :-)
The buttons are from ButtonMad. I won them quite some time ago. Handmade in South Africa and absolutely gorgeous. They are Carolin's favourite part of the shirt.
All in all a rewarding sew to get back into the groove. September is always a busier month (for many moms I think) but I am doing a bit of sewing every day, just for fun!
