Crafty sew and sew in Dorset

Welcome to my world of craft!

Crazy Pineapple Lady

on May 16, 2017

I bought the sew over it Ella blouse from the PDF club last month but didn’t get round to make it until this week.

I popped to my local fabric land to get some fabric for a few other projects ( flint trousers and another Nettie bodysuit) and got distracted by some pineapple viscose fabric that I thought would look great as an ella blouse.

It’s pretty high waisted so can only be worn with high waisted trousers or skirts but that works for me. I wore this today with my sew house seven Alberta street skirt.

The pattern is really well drafted and clever how it finishes the inside so neatly. I’m not sure on the fit on the arms though, they are cut in one piece but that restricts movement when you reach forward.

I’ll definitely wear this wrap top in the summer as a sun protection. I did wear it to work today and no one commented…. probably thinking I was crazy in my pineapple shirt!!!

    Don’t you hate it when a new make goes unnoticed? I think you’ve done a great job on this though. Very cute.

    Loving the pineapples 🍍🍍 I think it looks fab! Would also look fab over a dress, shame about the sleeves, it’s annoying when you feel restricted.
