Megan Nielsen Dove Blouse This blouse I whipped up to go with a new necklace. I cut down the facing to my narrower topstitching line. I made the hem facings but decided to take them off and double narrow hem instead. I used light interfacing and the fabric has a lovely non crease drape. This is the second time I've sewn it - before in another tiny floral but in cotton poplin - that was too boxy for it.
I stopped for sparkly joys at TKMaxx! This necklace is from an Israeli designer. It's sterling silver but looks almost rose gold. The blue suits beach /nautical or office clothes. You can find some trendy one off pieces there. It was £18 on sale.
The fabric was from earlier this year (5 metres smooth polyester dress fabric) and I ordered the Dove during a black Friday sale. I planned to make a flowy white or pink linen top but it's perfect short sleeves with a ditsy floral. The Dove blouse has cut out bust darts, which I found easier to sew. This is a size S. I will definitely make more in this lightweight polyester, viscose or cotton lawn. I loved wearing this top and it is suitable for hot weather.
