Don't worry if you don't "get" the title of this post; that's an in-house joke... ;)
I have made another birthday shirt, this one for Mum.
The pattern is Vogue 1247. Yup. This is the seventh butterfly to emerge from this particular pattern and wing gracefully away from my sewing machine. Yowzer. This could be a record, even for Miss Repetitive (ie. me)....
Man. I need to traverse fresh paddocks.
But in the meantime, Mum had mentioned she really like this top, so ... :)
Mum tried on the two versions of this top I had made for myself and decided she liked the fit so I just made the same size and lengthened it by about 2.5cm at her request.
The fabric is is Rowan's shot cotton in Granite, with a pink warp and a periwinkle blue weft.
All the seams are French seams, and I did the lower hem differently this time... the way it is explained in the pattern is just slightly on the unnecessarily-difficult side in my opinion, when it needn't be. Instead of the stay-stiching and the trimming, I just folded a narrow hem under twice, pressed, pinned and stitched. So much more simple, and yes, it was a heck of a lot easier to turn under too!
Mum made her own white trousers, and her scarf is Metalicus.
