After my foray into the wild and untamed world of animal print clothing (I suspect Prttynpnk has developed a worldwide sewing-manipulation ray gun and has stashed said weapon thereabouts in her sewing room) AND she managed to make me part with a loved but unused 2m of fabric, I happily returned to normal life and sewing without prints of any kind. Interestingly I noticed, when constructing a garment in a plain fabric - every mistake shows up a hundredfold, so precision and accuracy is crucial. Is this the attraction of wild prints? Hiding the flaws? No judgement - just an observation.....I've been there.
I focused attention and effort to sewing for my SWAP 13. Still on the Audrey side of my Hepburn collection I went for the simplest, but not the the easiest of makes: a good old draped neck blouse, reminiscent of the Givenchy blouse I used as inspiration. I'm on a pattern diet (fast) at the moment so dug out my TNT Paco draped top.
What could go wrong? A perfectly drafted pattern, made so many times in so many fabrics. And fits my requirements for the SWAP perfectly.
See that point at the centre front? Curses upon you......perfect point!
I actually reverted to my own advice to make this point razor sharp: and to my amazement - it worked!The inside is a bit messy, what with all the marker pen lines and having to use a white fusible interfacing as it was the only colour I had, but the end result on the outside is fine.
Separated at birth? (BTW Audrey's the one on the right, just in case you were wondering)
