Hot on the heels of my Dandelion dress, here’s a Dandelion blouse.
This fabric is a second-generation stashbuster: I think my mum must have bought it in Thailand in the 70s. I’ve been waiting to find the right pattern to use. I think a dress might be a bit much, don’t you?
I cut this out at social sewing at Made on Marion the other weekend, chatterboxing with Zara, Jo, Sophie and Maryanne. The good news is that I have a bit left. It might be enough for a simple sleeveless blouse (Sorbetto, maybe?). Maybe it will be a gift.
I drafted a higher neckline and a Peter Pan collar from Gertie’s tutorial.
Obviously I wasn’t paying attention because the collar is way too far apart at the back.

Oooh! That’s so fabulous. I was very curious about how it would look when you were cutting out your gorgeous fabric. You’ve done a beautiful job, it looks absolutely marvelous
Thanks Zara! Do you think you could use the leftover bit? It’s 1m x 80cm. If you want it, it’s got your name on it. (By the way, someone at work told me I reminded them of a curtain, so beware!)
Yes please!! I love this fabric and I have no problems with looking like a curtain. I do work with artistic people though and they only complain when people wear too much black, they would LOVE this
It’s cute and your collar works!
Isn’t Gertie’s peter pan collar so easy to follow – I used that tutorial for a top and it come out just great. Your collar looks great and sits perfects. If you wear your hair out no will ever know – although I think it is a great design feature.
Yes it’s a really nice tutorial, I just had an attack of the nearly-theres (not concentrating close to the end of a garment)!
The is Mari from Disparate Disciplines. I love how you made the pattern your own! I’d like to feature your blouse on my site. If you’re interested please email me.
Very cool, the collar is a lovely touch!
Love the fabric (and think it would look just lovely as a Sorbetto). You’ve matched fabric along the back seam/zip beautifully – I just wouldn’t have the patience!
Ha! That’s called a happy accident! This word – patience – I will have to look it up.
Second generation stash busting? That’s really impressive!! 🙂 I love the collar,
I don’t think it looks like a mistakeit’s a beautiful design element 😉
