The “It’s Obvious I can’t get enough Pink” Blouse
If there was an anonymous group for a person who wears a ridiculous amount of pink, I would absolutely be a member.
But it would seem that The Sew Weekly has infiltrated my subconscious and the pattern and fabric that I pulled out last week is, you guessed it, pink. I just cannot escape – petal, fuchsia, watermelon, bubblegum, raspberry – I think they are all fabulous!
I have been meaning to make this blouse for quite a while with some leftover yardage.
The skirt was completed quite a few years ago, but I have not had many opportunities to wear it, or rather, not enough tops to match the darn thing. Problem solved!
I think I may have to make a couple more, in some pretty prints!
