Thanks to my fellow blog readers, I decided on the smaller polka dot print and from there I went with Version 2 of the blouse. The double ruffles were different from anything I had in my closet and seemed fun for Spring.
The only variation I made in the pattern itself was adding a 9" side zipper. I used a cotton that wasn't very forgiving and couldn't imagine pulling it on over my head without it. It fits in perfect and with every detail like this (zipper and buttons) that I work with, it gets easier and easier.
I loved this pattern and can't wait to make it again in a lighter, flowier (that's a word, right?) fabric. Maybe something for a Summer palette challenge? Fingers crossed that Colette hosts another one.
Three items down, two to go! How's everyone else doing on the Colette challenge?
