What kind of fabric did you use? For this Ginger skirt (my fourth!) I used a piece of heavy gabardine I found in my stash box – it’s of unidentified fiber content and at least ten years old! I made the Jasmine blouse in a cheap polyester gauze; it was difficult to work with, but I’m just nuts about the print!
How did you decide to reflect your personal style in the pattern? The fabric I chose for the blouse had a retro feel to me, which I felt fit my style and the style of the pattern. I made the skirt specifically to go with this blouse,and felt that the pointed waistband of Version 1 nicely mirrored the neckline of the Jasmine blouse.
What thoughts do you have about the project? Although it’s quite wearable, I considered the blouse to be my muslin. I made no changes, but the next time (and there will be a next time!) I’ll make the sleeve cuffs slightly looser. I generally don’t have to do any fitting on tops, and the fit of this bias cut blouse is truly flattering.
