Hi there and welcome to my second guest blog post for Good Fabric
I made it in the Tencel Thin Pinstripe Twill in Dark Green, which has now unfortunately sold out, but not to worry, there are some other stunning alternatives which I will list below.
I made a few small changes to the pattern, if you know me at all you will not be surprised I wanted a bit more drama from the sleeves! Instead of using the full tie piece, I shortened it to the first notch and used this piece as a cuff. This fit perfectly around my upper arm, so I can either push the sleeve up to create a dramatic puff or let it hang loose. I also lowered the neckline slightly, removing the top button.
This blouse is the perfect addition to my autumn wardrobe and definitely my favourite colour (this is my 5th green tencel garment, never mind the other fabric types!). It is perfect paired with skinny jeans and a blazer, my go to autumn outfit. I have a pair of black Dawn jeans planned in the beautiful Mind the Maker denim from Good Fabric, and I can't wait to pair these together.
If you want to go for something a little more dressy there is also the Cupro Tencel Bark Crepe in Blue, Burgundy and Night Green which is very similar to mine. I have a sample of this and will definitely be adding it to my ‘to buy’ list, it would make a stunning blouse for the Christmas period.
If you want to go for a bold print there is also the Mind the Maker Urban Leo collection, I have the Rose colour in this and it is stunning! It would make a beautiful Ambre blouse.
