Shirt 4/12 - April! Bellini pattern by Capital Chic (PDF £9.00). The casual blouse style is suitable for Hawaiian or summer prints and it's smart enough to want to wear. The fabric is from a new duvet I purchased from George click and collect on my bike after work on Friday. It's polycotton so it's easy to iron in the mornings and doesn't crease easily. I can't eat iced gems anymore but I can wear them! Apparently they were made in the 1910's here in Reading, Berkshire by Huntley & Palmers. For me, they have a 1980's / 1990's nostalgia of childhood!

I made no changed to the pattern but to add 0.6cm to the full-hip and thigh outer seam. I ordered a whole roll of black 5cm elastic this time to avoid trips to the local fabric shop! Elastic waist stretch woven Barb pants: Etsy size 10-12-14
The top is just a white broderie anglaise peasant top I purchased last year. I wore it with a vest underneath as it is fairly sheer. Blazer from Collectif (on sale).
I originally enjoyed Style Arc for their range of trouser patterns but they have other sleek modern designs.
