Farmer’s Market Shirt


Hurray for Spring Bring on Colour!

I actually made this shirt over my school break in February, but hadn’t had a chance to photograph it since then. It’s another version of the Folsom Prison Blouse. This time I eliminated the ruffles and used the alternate collar. The material is a lovely doted “twinkle crepe” (I have do idea what that means, but I felt I needed a little twinkle in my day).  The material was pretty easy to work with, but it became tricky when I had seams that crossed over both interfaced and non-faced parts. I was constantly going back and fourth between two different needles. I also ended up making 2 collars:  I couldn’t get the first one to line up properly and after ripping it out several times, I decided it would be better to just start that part all over again and it gave me some material to practice the button holes on. I doubled the number of them and used some little pearly ones that didn’t make the cut for the last shirt. I love that it’s professional enough for the office, but is cozy enough for the saturday morning market run.

  1. Definately ‘twinkley’. This is divine on you, and that outfit with the high waisted skirt…drewl! I am officially following your blog, can’t wait to see what you come up with next.

    • Thank you so much! FBA: sometimes yes, sometimes no. It depends on the pattern, the material and also – the bra! I try to look for patterns with already start out with bust darts in hopes of less alterations to do.
