This is my first challenge for The Monthly Stitch and it was "Sewing Double", to revisit a favourite pattern and make a second one. I love my Papercut patterns La Sylphide dress that I made in October last year, blogged about here. It is my go-to dress when I don't have a lot of time to get ready, I always feel happy in it and love the floaty feminine skirt. I had wanted to try the blouse version so the April challenge was a good opportunity. The fabric is a soft drapey cotton gifted to me recently by an aunt.
The main alteration I made was to adjust the back neckline and tie to fit my narrow shoulders. I also cut the tie on the bias and used pearl snaps instead of buttons. I did my best to match up the plaids and I am pretty happy with it turned out. This was a very cheap make, only $4.50 for the snaps as the fabric was gifted. Wendy xx
