I was busy cutting out Lottie blouses to keep me awake when I had to take the Blog Manager to catch a bus to Rome!
I really like the style as I can’t help but be smart when casual!! So, I have made quite a few now…..you saw the Lawn Lottie on Wednesday 8/4/15 ( and a link to all the previous makes) and today it is ……
I don’t put any interfacing in the bow as the cotton is just right for tying the bow and making it sit perfectly in the neck.
I had a new cardigan to match and so decided to make it sleeveless. It is also lovely and sunny here in the North East of England! I added my own bias binding edging to the armholes and decided to make them visible on the edge of the sleeve. I hand stitched this down inside.
An extra arty shot for you… It reminds me of photos in the 1970s!
Pattern: Simple Sew Lottie Blouse
Fabric: 1.5m of cotton from this post from The Knitting and Stitching Show
Wonky Factor: 10/10 as I am loving to wear a Lottie and a cardigan!
Many thanks as always to my outstanding Blog Manager….and here she is in Rome!
