Her post about the pattern: Black & White Colette Jasmine
What kind of fabric did you use? A silky soft white rayon and a black linen/rayon blend for the collar.
How did you decide to reflect your personal style in the pattern? This year one of my sewing goals is to fill in gaps in my wardrobe – one of which was solid color tops. The Jasmine pattern was perfect for that goal. And with the simple black and white and the cute tie this shirt has a sort of feminine 1960s French vibe which I love. What thoughts do you have about the project? This is the first bias cut shirt I’ve ever made and I love it. It’s great that I don’t need any closures to put the shirt on yet it is still form fitting without being uncomfortable. I think I’m hooked on bias sewing now!
