Floral flair & denim

I am making my return to the sewing blogger community with this amazing and very stylish (hint on denim and floral pattern) blouse for warmer weather outside. I love the fact that it does not require too much fabric and to sweeten up the deal – I found a free pattern on the internet. Read on and I will share my tips and tricks!

Pattern: this pattern I found on the internet, among many others. What caught my eye? The fact that it had interesting neckline shape, that promised difficult construction due to the straight corners.  Get you FREE pattern here. Enjoy!
 
Fabric: I used remnant pieces that I could not push myself to get rid off, and good that I did not! 🙂 1/2 yd of each fabric should make it happen, I had irregular fabric scraps and I made it work. Blue fabric is lightweight denim and floral is soft hand silk satin. It is not thick at all and suits perfectly. You will want to choose fabrics that have some body to them in order to form those straight angle corners and to shape beautiful darts in the back. Find similar fabric here.
