Sew cute blouse to make!

Spring is here! We haven’t quite packed away the winter woolies yet as there is always a chance of one of those pesky cold fronts moving up-country from the Cape. Heck, we’ve even had one in November! But oh boy it is good to be smelling jasmine & lavender and seeing a haze of bright Spring green everywhere outside and of course, being able to wear lighter and brighter summery clothes.
Today I discovered this really cute blouse pattern and just had to share as it is super-easy! Once you’ve purchased the pattern, it’s a case of downloading it and then reading the easy-to-follow instructions.
There is no actual pattern to print or cut out, you simply follow the measuring instructions and cut directly on the fabric and voilà! The blouse is called the “Amelia shirt” and is by Frogs Legs and Ponytails (love the name!)
Another great thing about this pattern is that you cam make it to fit any size. Make it for yourself, your daughter, or even a doll!
I love that tie at the neckline. It has arguably a little Anthropologie feel to it. (I love Anthropologie and we don’t even have shops here in this country {sob!!} I fell in love with it on our London trip in June and I am smitten! –Please if any Anthropologie marketers read this- please send a couple of stores out here to South Africa! LOL!)
So getting back to the Amelia blouse… If you also want this fab pattern, click on the picture and it’ll take you straight to the website…

Speaking of the website, there are so many gorgeous projects to tackle over at “You can Make This” that it’s worth staying a while and browsing. There’s even a “free’ section with loads of quick things to make.
I’m off to find some cute fabric to make this blouse and I’ll share a pic as soon as it’s done.
Have a great weekend, and also pop over to The Girl Creative to add your bloglink on New Friend Friday so you can join in the Party Blog- so much fun and a great way to bring people to your artsy crafty blog.

That looks like a lovely top, i am useless at sewing garments though, give me a cushion or blind to sew anyday!

I hope you make the top, I'd love to see it! Thank you for your kind comment on my blog, and enjoy your spring time. It's almost fall here in Idaho, USA...my favorite time of the year.
