Colette makes some super cute patterns! Though I don't think their "block" is exactly my body type (having shoulders a bit too broad and boobage a bit too small)...and ran into some fitting issues with their Aster, I continue to adore ALL, and I mean ALL my Sorbettos!! Then, when I signed up for Seamwork online, I was offered a free PDF pattern of their York blouse - a pattern I had already been eyeing!!! My sleuthing had revealed that it was either much adored or much maligned by on-line sewists. But I kept thinking, "What's not to like????"
|Having just a bit of my lovely linen left over from my Demi Pants and a free pattern....I thought it would be a winning combo!! After checking out the pattern pieces...I decided to make a straight 6, with no adjustments, as the shoulders appeared to be plenty broad and the bust dart okay.|
|I couldn't resist accenting the blue thread in the linen with some top stitching! Again!!|
|I love this cuff!|
|Though the pattern includes an extension of the bias tape facing to the neck as a tie closure, I couldn't resist using this lone blue button, that has resided for years in my button collection, with an embroidered loop.|
A fun, easy sewing project!! I really like my pretty, York! Thanks Colette!! Sew chaotically! - les
