Bloomsbury

Hello! I didn’t mean to go so long without a post. I’ve been busy sewing but it’s hard to photograph spring/ summer clothes with a foot of snow outside. It’s finally starting to feel a little bit like spring so I headed outside yesterday. I made this Nina Lee Bloomsbury blouse and was happy to finally wear it! I must have made this at least a month ago but I remember it coming together easily.

I bought the pdf file and printed it at home. I opted for the thicker ruffle and decided to forgo the neck and sleeve ruffle. I had an old kit to do fabric covered buttons and I’m so glad I used it! I was one short so I used an old blue covered button I had in my stash for the top closure. The fabric is Cotton and Steel X Rifle Paper Co and it’s so pretty! I knew I had to use it for this blouse when I spotted it at a local fabric shop.

I made the smallest size and am happy with the fit. I’m just not thrilled about the gaping hole in the upper back. You can see it above. I might add another button or some kind of closure there. I hope to make this again! I saw a sleeveless version and a dress version online so I’m thinking maybe a sleeveless dress for summer?! This was my first Nina Lee pattern and I’m sure I’ll be getting another. Perhaps the Kew dress that’s so popular!
