Another Liberty lawn Summer blouse- made from A Sunny Spot Japanese Pattern book

Unfortunately the weather is awful today (being the middle of Winter) and the lighting isn’t the most wonderful for taking quality photos.

Here is a quick to make project from A Sunny Spot- I made blouse pattern F (A4 on the pattern sheets) to make up this pretty Summer top with bias ties. The modifications were the ties rather than straps and no elastic at the bottom. My reasons were, I thought it would be a great top for layering, I didn’t like the overly bouffant look in the pattern book photos and I thought ties would actually make this a top that might see a couple of seasons wear as our little girl grows. The fabric is pink Katie and Millie design in Liberty lawn (purchased from Purl Soho in New York). A Sunny Spot is quickly becoming a favourite pattern book. But I suppose it helps that it favours Liberty lawn which I am increasingly in love with because it is so wonderful to work with.
