Fireworks Cami

These are more dandelions than fireworks, but since the radio won't stop playing the song, I instantly think I'm looking at fireworks when I see this blouse.

The front of the blouse. Oh, and I got a haircut. :)

I think this is the most well-constructed garment I've put together.  It was so fun to work with and though the thought of so many buttons was terrifying to me, in the end, I enjoyed putting them together. I think I'm almost ready for the Ceylon dress by Colette.

In regards to the buttons, I was going to do all black but my local shop only had 4 available.  I ended up alternating red and black buttons along the back. I like the whimsical feel of it and have received a lot of compliments about that aspect especially.

This was at the end of a long day of work so it's a bit wrinkled in back

A great project for a little over a yard of fabric.  I'll be making this one again in some additional fun prints in the future.  You can find my original, start post for this blouse, the Lotus Cami by Amy Butler, here.

Do you have any favorite, low-yardage patterns?

I leave you with some pictures of 'winter' in California.  I'm spoiled, I know.

  2. Thank you! Wallace will love the extra pets. He's so spoiled. I am loving the blouse - I keep peeking at new fabrics to try it in.
