Sewing for myself is a goal that I've often put off. Sure, a simple A-line skirt has come off the machine once in a while, but nothing with shaping or a bit more complicated. I've done plenty of girls dresses and boys PJ pants, quilts, purses, and more, so I think it's high time to try something for me, right?

I'm going to try this Amy Butler "Liverpool" pattern. It's a button down darted blouse with variations for it to be sleeveless, short sleeve, 3/4 sleeve, long sleeved.... blouse length, tunic length, dress length.... you see the options are nearly endless!

Now comes the challenge of pairing the pattern with a suitable fabric. I'd love some cotton voile or lawn, but generally don't like to wear see-through fabrics!

Of course, the wallpaper in the photo is amazing. I'd love to have a large wall done up in that, but then my family would probably lock me in that room!


  1. That looks wonderful!
    Be sure to stop by the Ben Franklin on Victory. They carry cottons for 2.99-3.49 yd that are a very nice quality and the (French?) lady who buys their fabrics has very interesting taste.
    You can join their fabric club which is buy two yards, get one free. Or their 20% off craft club.

    Can't wait to see you in this when you are done.
    I'm really struggling to find sewing time.

  2. looove amy butler's prints, and that pattern looks (way beyond me but) really cute! looking forward to seeing the finished product.
