Vogue Patterns 8609 in Liberty Tana Lawn – Kate Ada

I made this blouse awhile ago, and although I had blogged it back then, the post got deleted when I revamped my site last year. I want to include it here in My Sewn Wardrobe, so I’m writing it up again. Sorry if you’ve already seen this. It’ll be mostly pictures.

This blouse is the first garment I made after a couple of decades! I love this Liberty print, I’d used it for lining this bag, and decided I wanted to see more of it.

I’ve had this sewing pattern for years now, can’t remember exactly when I bought it, but I think it would have been back in the very early ’90s.

A favourite wooden button for the back closure.

French seams all the way through. Although I’m not really happy with the underarm seam It’s pulling a little.

Overall, a very wearable blouse. I hope to get at least one photo of me wearing it for you. I’ll add it here when I do.
