It feels good to have a new blouse for the wardrobe. I've had this on the go for a few weeks, interspersed with holidays and my machines being away, but I finally finished it on the weekend. Yes, its another Named pattern Kanerva. It isn't often that I sew the same pattern up more than once, but I am a big fan of this pattern. A big fan. I just love the fit and while a more simple fabric would show the design lines, I do love it in crazy Liberty prints.
This time I made it up in Liberty Atrium C, which is from the Liberty Art Fabrics SS 14, Gallery of Prints collection.
The Street Level fabric story celebrates Liberty’s eclectic ground floor accessories. Each design pays homage to a different area or department, taking on the intrinsic mood of each individual space.
I love the 1920s feel of this design and bought this fabric in the blue colourway as well as I wasn't sure from the internet photos which one I would like. I found the blue to be way too washed out for me but I love the autumn colours of this one.
The only change I made from the last one, was to interface the button plackets with a heavier interfacing as I found the lighter weight one on my other Kanerva is a bit too light and there is a tendency for the plucket to go a bit out of shape during/after a wear.
So, a new blouse to add to the Me Made May rotation! Sadly, I've fallen off the wagon a bit in terms of documentation as I spent last week at FashFest covering the fashions for The Canberran, but I have been wearing me mades every day and keen to catchup and dive into the flickr pool.
