Bambi Tara

The first blouse from my Tara Experiment Week is done!  It’s  cool and comfortable, definitely something I will wear. I thought there is some retro vibe in it as well. It’s a sweet  blouse compared to the usual t-shirts I wear but I don’t mind it.

This time, I used a fabric slightly heavier than the last and I think it is a cotton/linen blend. That’s partly why I decided to go ‘sleeveless’ so that I can remain cool on a hot day.

My deviation from the Tara sewing pattern:

– Added flaps with white piping at the neckline and also a button.

– Used bias tape and lace for the sleeve in place of the butterfly ruffles.

One down, two more to go!!!

  1. This is lovely! I was thinking of trying to whip up this top when i saw verypurpleperson’s version — it’s so flattering to the bust. This is a great adaptation (I didn’t think I could pull off those original sleeves!)
