Flip from front to back

I flipped the Ethan shirt pattern from front to back for this month’s flip this pattern at frances and suzanne.

I wanted to make up a blouse to go with theĀ shorts I made for my daughter.

So with this as an inspirationĀ  I made up my flip also adding my own variation and added it to the the knock it off series on the Elegance and elephants.

These are the modification I did for the pattern;

As I said earlier, I cutout the front pattern piece and used it as the back.Then bought the back piece to the front which I scooped up at the neckline.

Also I added a piping for the yolk to add colour.

I added flutter sleeves with bias tape.

The buttons I used were yellow floral to enhance the beauty of the blouse.

I used a swiss dot fabric to keep my daughter cool in the Sri Lankan hot weather. She is comfortable for sure because she doesn’t want to take it off!

Sunny day shorts – customized

I just can’t get enough of the sunny day shorts from Oliver + S. And with shorts on the line now happening I thought I’ll enter another version of the sunny day shorts.

I used a much lighter fabric this time – a quilted cotton.

I sewed it up using a flat felt seam. I know I just love the finish I get out of it. For the contrasting pockets and the cuffs I used a floral swiss dot fabric.

This is the back of the shorts

I’m planning to sew up a top to go with the shorts. Hope it would come up nice.

Thanks for reading
