Time for another fantastic make from our very own GBSB contestant, Amanda!
The Lawn Lottie
I had to take Annice to school at 12pm on a Saturday night for her school visit to Rome, so I knew I had to stay awake and not drop asleep…..I knew sewing was out of the question because it would have gone wrong , but cutting out!!????
Here is the pattern:
So with great gusto, I cut out three Lottie blouses! I know, I know…I need to get out more! But I love the Lottie pattern so much. It fits beautifully, I love the vintage style and I just love wearing it!
The White Tree newsletter said that Lisa was hoping for some pastel shades on the website soon and I couldn’t agree more. This is such a beautiful fabric to wear and sew! It would look great in a Summer dress, skirt or blouse.
I love the bow, and I didn’t sew the ends so that the fancy edging showed.
I used shop bought bias binding on the sleeves and hand stitched it down.
How did I wear it….. I wore my shop bought (from years ago!!) geometric black and white raincoat! I have always loved a raincoat!
Pattern: The Lottie Blouse -Simple Sew
Fabric: Black Lawn from White Tree Fabrics.
Wonky Factor: 9/10 . I love it but think it should be a little more fitted at the sides. A new blouse from leftovers! Thanks White Tree!
