Another pattern testing! This time I tested a really quick sew for Love Notions. The Lotus Blossom Blouse looks complicated with the twist in the front, but actually is fairly simple and it comes in a full range of sizes; from little girls' 2T all the way up to ladies XXXL (though girls and ladies are sold separately there is a discount for buying the bundle).
I love that there is also the option to have a lace inset at the back neckline. I would have loved to do that, but I didn't have any stretch lace and I'm not allowed to buy more fabric.
I also made my jeans. They were full length, but my fabric seems to keep shrinking even though I prewashed it, so I just rolled them up into capris. I made them using #9 Lady Fit Jeans from the 5/2012 issue of Ottobre Design. They turned out really well, though I have to keep pulling them up all the time and my zipper gave me issues. I love that I used a floral fabric for the pocket bags and waistband lining for a little bit of fun.
