Another Kind of Stash Blouse

A few days ago, while browsing on Craftsy.com I came  across a project that caught my eye. The maker had created a lovely fabric with little scraps, and then fashioned a case for eye glasses with it. That inspired me to dig out all of my little odd sized scraps, and try to make a fabric. I began to cut rectangular pieces, and serge them together at the narrow end, making several long strips. I then serged the strips together at the long sides to create a large piece of fabric. Because I'm not a quilter, I purposely cut the fabric pieces in various sizes so I didn't have to worry about matching seams. And because I knew I would be making a garment, I wanted finished seams, so that's why I used the serger. An overcast stitch on the sewing machine would work just as well. At first I considered making a skirt with my scrap fabric, but decided on a simple blouse. I used a very simple Butterick See & Sew pattern B5204. The pattern is out of print, but still available on-line. Click on "Read more" to continue...
