I'm very late with posting this for kcwc 2013. I made one other piece as well that I will post later. Anyway I whipped up this quick little blouse for my babes. I bought the fabric from my local quilt shop. It's Riley Blake's Song Bird by Carina Gardner. I paired it with a navy and white chevron and navy and aqua chevron both also by Riley Blake. I used the navy and aqua chevron to make bias tape for the arm holes and hem. Funny thing about the bias trim: I made just over 2.5 yards of it and just barely had enough of it. Fortunately I made it.
I designed the shirt to be a bit A-line and a little of a tent blouse. I added a keyhole button and loop closure in the back. I embellished the front with multiple contrasting ruffles. I also added a bit of elastic to the sides to cinch in the bodice to keep it from being so balloony.
Before I forget: When I uploaded photos of this shirt to instagram, Elsie Marley was the first person to like my photo. Talk about your excitement!!!! I was super SUPER SUPER excited to see that. No kidding!!!! At any rate, what did you create for kcwc spring 2013? I hope you were more productive than I was!
