I came across this Marimekko fabric on the internet, and couldn't resist to buy some 😄
The colors caught my eyes, and I knew it would be nice for a blouse.
Of course I have to use my favorite pattern, but this time with short sleeves!
I have made a simple skirt with rubber-band at the waist to fit with the blouse.
Then the outfit was ready to wear! ☼
I started with the shoulders and the facing.
Sleeves to come.
I tried to match the fabric at the side seams, but it was not so easy.
Collar in place and buttons to come!
A little tip when sewing the buttons;
use a match underneath when stitching the button in place, then it's easier to button up.
This is an easy jersey skirt.
