Finally sewed something for myself, it’s been a while! Not to sound like a broken record, but I believe I’ve had this pattern traced and pattern pieces cut for at least 4 months. At one point I got sick of all the clutter lying around and just put it all away. So I needed to sew something, anything the other night. I pulled out the Datura Blouse pattern by Deer & Doe.
Let me tell you how much I love this pattern. Firstly, it’s so beautifully packaged (I’m a sucker for great packaging). Secondly, the directions are just enough, definitely not too complicated where you have to stare at them and scratch your head. Thirdly, the fit!!! woah, I never expected the fit to be so great. Of course if you make one yourself you might not be so lucky (you know, we all have different body shapes), but I’m just in awe. Thank you Deer & Doe!
I wasn’t originally going to use this berry colored linen. So glad I did though, so soft and flowy. I’m pretty much done done sewing myself any type of top with quilting cotton, like ever. I will definitely be able to wear this to work, which is super awesome. Plus the cut outs (which I didn’t really think I’d make use of) are a super cute detail and suits the fabric well.
Well, there you have it. And I’m in love.
