Pattern: Deer & Doe Airelle blouse made into a dress
Fabric: All cotton bought locally. I’m lucky to have a few fabric shops around me.
Size and Alteration: Size 38 without fitting alterations. I only lengthen the blouse in a slightly A line shape. The sleeves were cut like the colette macaroon, with a slighly tulip shape and I used self drafted facings. The ties are placed above the waist for an empire dress look to avoid the crispness and the excess fabric to make me look bigger.
I made it like a dress to show my students how versitile this pattern is. Oh my, I cannot wait to share how exciting was to teach this blouse at the Village Haberdashery. The best was recieve lovely emails from my students after the class. I’m teaching this blouse September 21th. Are you coming?
I have to confess that feels so is strange to wear something that loose fitting and boxy. I like this pattern better as a blouse so I can wear with skynny jeans, however this dress is very adorable and looks very pretty inside.
