My cottage chic cotton blouse is back, with lovely summer colors and prints.
I have a few cotton fabrics which I will use to make the top of this design. I need to wash these fabrics in the washing machine first to preshrink them. The first picture shows the fabrics of my original intention of color combination. I bought the solid colored fabrics in the middle yesterday and they have not been washed yet.
I was a little impatient this morning and did not want to wait for the fabrics to be washed. So, I used another preshrunk fabric in grey instead.
I made the blouse in size Medium. But because it is a loose-fitting design it will also fit a person wearing size Large (bust up to 37 inches, waist up to 32 inches). The square neck is decorated with hand and machine stitches.
It is slightly gathered on the front and has large bell sleeves.
The top is now available for sale on my Etsy shop as a sample sale item for 49 dollars. It is one of a kind. In the coming weeks I will make some more of the tops with other color combinations and sizes. And the price will be 67 dollars each.
I would also like to mention that I listed a sample sale item for the blue jersey top. The neckline is a little too high around the shoulders. It is in size Medium and the price is 49 dollars. Visit my shop for more details.
