Sewing Projects Liberty and Leather Papercut Patterns Flutter Blouse 

I have a distinct feeling that my love affair with the new Papercut Patterns Flutter Tunic/Blouse pattern is just beginning! Not only is it one of those patterns that is just so me, it is insanely comfortable and easy to wear even whilst wrangling a highly opinionated toddler, and fits like a dream. It truly is pattern perfection in my eyes! For this Blouse I decided to go with the short sleeve version lengthening the body of the blouse by 4 1/2 inches and best of all I was able to squeeze it out of a 1 meter piece of Liberty Tana lawn I had in my stash purchased from Tessuti Fabrics some months back. I decided again to go with leather binding on the neck of this Flutter blouse to make it a little less girlie, and a little more me. The hems on the blouse and sleeves were all finished with a simple hand sewn double fold hem. Probably my favourite part of this pattern is the back, I always find it fascinating how such a simple detail can make something so special. I reinforced the top of the split seam with a simple little bar tack to give it a little more strength whilst toddler chasing, and used Hong Kong binding on the inside of the back seam for neatness. I can’t wait to make another Flutter Blouse, in fact I already have another just waiting to be cut and sewn in the most amazing jewel print Liberty this time in the long sleeve version. There’s no such thing as too much of a good thing!
