West Coast Blouse

My sister-in-law, who is an artist, recently launched a fabric design company. (You can also find them on Facebook. Her designs are very much inspired by nature – very organic. They kind of remind me of a West Coast Lotta Jansdotter. I got some of her organic sateen fabric recently in her “Branching Out” pattern.

I decided to make a top with it to really showcase the design. I chose the Pendrell Top by Sewaholic. Sewaholic is a recent discovery for me – found them through my fabulous local shop, Spool of Thread, and they are also Vancouver (well, Burnaby)-based which is super-cool. I just started reading through Sewaholic’s blog and she has so much great information on there – it’s very inspiring.

Et voila – here’s what happens when you mix a BC fabric designer and a BC pattern designer – something very West Coast.
