Samantha Walker - Decadence Fabric

Yesterday was chilly but dry. For this Oregonian it means it was a perfect time to venture out and take some photos. Samantha Walker's Decadence Fabric Line was so inspiring that I had to play with it this weekend! I created this blouse with this orange and white fabric.




To create the blouse, I created a pattern with a large sheet of paper. I took a top from my closet to use as a guide. I traced half of the top and folded the paper over to cut the pattern out. Then, I cut the front side of the top with the White Floral Decadence Fabric using the pattern.


Since I only had a yard of fabric and cotton of course needs a zipper or buttons in the back, I chose to use a knit fabric for the back. I used a brown that matched perfectly. Now I can slide this top on and off over my head with no problem.


I also made the back longer to be a little more modest. The front is a nice length that I can also wear another layer underneath (such as a lace undershirt) if I like.


For the collar, I folded the fabric as if I was creating large bias tape. Then I folded it over itself. I pinned it on the collar and sewed it down.



I love that I can layer this top along with my thrifted sweater. I am going to try this with a few blouse patterns I have here at home. It is a great way to use hip new cotton fabrics along with knits to create an easy pull over top in one afternoon!

Create Well: Be bold. Mix knits and cottons to create a unique wardrobe with hip cotton fabrics.
