This weekend I just wanted an easy project to rinse away all the stress of the past few weeks. I had a yard of this fabric I bought months ago. It was the end of the bolt so I got a smoking deal…only $1.25 for the whole thing. It was too short to work for most of my patterns but then I got the idea of making a blouse. I selected Simplicity 1590
It took some magical skills but I was able to fit all the pattern pieces on that tiny 1 yard of fabric.
The fabric is a little coarse in texture and loosely woven but I still adore the print on it. It reminds me of a painters pallet. Once finished I tried it on with a bunch of different bottoms but nothing looked right until I stumbled upon this pencil skirt. Who knows maybe will find a job in an office some day and get to wear it.
