Happy Sunday Lovelies!

It’s that ONE THIMBLE time of year again! It’s been so busy around here that I almost didn’t have the time to sew up anything for Issue 15 of One Thimble Magazine. *clutches pearls and insert dramatic music here*

I absolutely couldn’t let that happen, so instead of my usual two part post, this time I’m only featuring one of the 9 patterns in Issue 15, and its a such a darling sew!

THE PHILLIPA BLOUSE

The Phillipa Blouse is a classic blouse with a lot of options to keep you sewing from summer through to autumn.

The Phillipa Blouse by Bobkin Designs features 3 collar options, 2 ruffle neck options and 2 sleeve options with a back button closure and runs from a size 2-10.

I decided on the angled collar and cap sleeves with bias trim option.

Isn’t it such a sweet sew? It really is one of those classic tops that you could wear all year around. I must admit, I fancy how perfect it is for a uniform type top which will definitely come in handy this fall.

Favorite thing about this pattern would be the cap sleeves. I love the way the gathers are marked and constructed.

If you follow me on social media, you already know that this blouse is actually an upcycle!

So let me know show you the back! This pattern is so awesome I was able to use the original button placket of the blouse to my advantage! Doing that seriously cut my sewing time in half.

Let’s talk about the entire outfit and I’ll give you a little back story of what happened. I took the BEFORE photo a couple weeks ago, and had a completely different intention for the chambray shirt. I finished sewing the pants which is the Peg Pants PDF Sewing Pattern from Tadah Patterns that same week, but life and other commitments rolled up on me and I had to leave the top until I could find the time to resume again. Fast forward to the my due date for this project and  as I was cleaning off my desk to start, I found the shirt and decided to just run with it and pair these two sews together. AND WALLAH!!

They work well together right? Really love how well that chambray and floral looks together. The floral fabric is from the Peacock Pavilion by Vicki Chu for Michael Miller Fabrics. I absolutely love the color ways of this collection.

Favorite thing about these pants has got to be the pockets!

She’s been obsessing about pants/slacks at the moment…so you can anticipate a few more pants posts after this one. lol
