My favourite Zinnia and the Pussy Bow blouse

This time I want to show you two of my favourite self-made garments. I already mentioned previously that I have made several skirts using Colette Zinnia pattern. This is my favourite one for winter – in fact, I’m wearing it right now!

I have used this tweed fabric a lot, since it is super comfortable and doesn’t wrinkle easily. It also drapes well, as you can see. To make most of the fabric that I had I made the pleats in the pattern a bit deeper. Then I wanted to add something extra by sewing a black sating piping to the edge of the waistband and attaching a tab at the center front.

I have been looking for a perfect pattern for this dragonfly crepe for a while. I already tried making a short sleeved blouse using another pattern but it did not succeed very well. This time I used Pussy Bow blouse pattern by Sew Over It. I had practiced already by making two blouses so I was sure of the fit. I modified the pattern by removing the center-front seam and replacing the v-neck with a slightly higher key-hole opening.

I really like how the blouse turned out. It was also a really easy to sew because a lot of time consuming details such as darts and sleeve slits had been had been purposefully left out.

  6. Takin Lizzie to the seaside – with my hands – Dream

    […] For the pictures we (my husband and I) went walking to the gorgeous studio and home of a famous Finnish artist Akseli Gallen-Kallela called Tarvaspää. This time we skipped the museum tour and went to the Villa Linudd just opposite of the museum to have some delicious cake and Coffee. I thought that the romantic skirt just suited this romantic villa with it’s lace tablecloths and flowery wallpapers. Besides the skirt, I am also wearing my Sew Over It Pussy Bow Blouse that I blogged here. […]
