If you have read my last posts, you know that I am in a BlouseQuest! The second blouse that I made is based on a Colette Pattern: the Crepe. A little while ago, I used the whole thing to make a dress, during Gertie's Sew-Along. Little flashback...
Back then, I really enjoyed the pattern. This is why, a few days ago, when I was looking for nice blouses to sew, something clicked in my head... Why not using the Crepe!!!??? I quickly looked in my stash, and I found a cute green fabrics, with white polka dots AND a gorgeous contrasting fabric that has a history! Indeed, My Grand Ma used it to make my christening dress like 28 years ago!
Everything went really fast:
1) Make peplums (pepla...) from the skirt parts.
2) Use lace for the hem
3) Bias bind the edges instead of a facing
4) Deepen the neckline (I used a round one this time)

Now, skip this part if you are hungry!
The day we took these pictures, I also cooked yummy things for guests. It was so sunny (but cold) and the light was so gorgeous that it made the food look even nicer!
|Mixed Mushrooms soup|
|Savory scones (blue cheese, apples and sesame seeds) and cherry clafouti!|
Mmmmmm, makes me feel hungry!
Anyway, that's all folks!
Do you like scones?
Do you use polka dots?
