Lekala Patterns and now Bootstrap Fashions Patterns are extremely appealing to me from a price point alone but they also have some very nice patterns. Added to this the ability to customize these patterns to my measurements and I am sold.
I was particularly drawn to Leko 4420. It has the peasant vibe that I am currently loving but is quite classic in design at the same time. I paid the extra 50c to get seam allowances because at 50c I would be mad not to!
I had been looking for a piece of white fabric to make a long sleeved top for a while and Spotlight had just the piece on their clearance table. It is a synthetic composition in a crepe, a washing machine friendly type of fabric that doesn't crease easily so it fit my brief perfectly. I picked up a blingy bra catch at Lincraft to finish the blouse off.
