This week I’m highlighting the lovely Taffy blouse from the Colette Sewing Handbook. This pretty pink version was made with silk chiffon, a tricky fabric! If you sew with something as lightweight as this, I highly recommend using a fabric spray stabilizer. The Taffy blouse can be dressed up or down, and made in so many fun colors and prints. I think it’d look so cute in a stripe with contrasting bias tape and ties. Be sure to pick a lightweight fabric for this shirt. It’s on the bias and meant to be drapey.
Have you made the Taffy blouse? What kind of fabric would you use? How do you envision wearing it? I’ve made a version in a gold cotton/rayon and wear it all the time with one of my several Ginger skirts.
