Rush Hour Blouse






A peplum blouse and princess seams sounds like a great combination, so I went to work on it with just a few changes.  This top is  high waisted and I am not!  I had a RTW top which had what I described a drop waist and then the peplum, I loved that top.  The Rush Hour Blouse seemed like the perfect pattern to try this option.  Plus, it has such a fun peplum with that front overlap.

McCall's 7547 - Mood Fabrics' Linen-Rayon


McCall's 7547 overall pattern made with Mood Fabrics' linen-rayon fabric

I have been wanting a pair of linen overalls for summer and decided it was time to get those made and have all summer to wear them.  I found the perfect fabric, Mood Fabrics’ Celadon Linen and Rayon Woven, the color is gorgeous and the fabric has a wonderful feel and drape.  I am sorry to say this color is sold out but there are several other colors available, maybe I should get another one and make more overalls, I love these so much.  From the Mood site about this fabric, The combination of linen and rayon provide a softer hand with a bit more radiance than a standalone linen
