What materials did you use? The main blouse is constructed from re-purposed home dec fabric (green) and the facing is a very light cotton voile, re-purposed from scraps.

What are you most proud of? I'm most proud that I re-used and re-purposed fabrics for this top instead of buying new materials. You'd never know the difference! The green fabric is also a home dec fabric but it wears beautifully and has a lovely sheen.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Once you know this pattern (I had already made two other blouses from the same envelope) you have a good idea of how to lay out the pieces to maximize your fabric use. I think re-using fabrics for a simple garment like this one is a fun challenge and I encourage you to do the same.
