Spoonflower / Seamwork Addison

Seamwork Addison top paired with a denim Pauline Alice Mirambell Skirt

I’m feeling ready for Valentines Day in my heart lollipop top! If you haven’t heard of Spoonflower before, it’s a website where you can get yours or someone else’s design printed on fabric, gift wrap, wallpaper or home decor. I have been wanting to try it for a while so when I came across this design I knew I had to get it! I went with the cotton poplin ultra option. It’s really smooth and crisp, and was so easy to work with.

When I saw this print, I immediately pictured a pussy bow blouse. I made the Seamwork Addison top in 2017 but I really wasn’t happy with my version. It felt too tight under the arms and wasn’t comfortable to wear. I ended up donating it. I had originally cut and taped the pdf pattern together so when I placed an order with PDFplotting.com, I had it reprinted to try it again. I just had to print out and tape the add on bonus for the tie neck. I cut a little more room under the arms and the fit is much better. It was a pretty quick sew but the collar was a bit tricky where it meets in the middle. It took a few tries but I got it to a point where I’m happy with it. I frenched the side seams so the inside has a clean finish. I might want to hem the bottom of the blouse a little shorter since it’s a little too long for my liking if I’m not wearing it tucked in.

I definitely want to make more of this Addison version. I think it’d be perfect in a cotton lawn for the summer. I also would like to try out some of the other fabric options from Spoonflower, although I think I need to save up a little because it can get pricey. Have you tried Spoonflower?

I hope you enjoy your Valentines day!

  1. What a fabulous top! I haven’t tried any of Spoonflower’s fabric yet, but I definitely want to – they have some ANAZING prints and seeing your top sewn up in their fabric makes me want to try it even more!

    Happy Valentine’s day!!
