That is just a small sampling of Gingham Check Fabric blouses on Pinterest.
Thanks to all that pinning Pinterest and my garments on my blog, Lisa at Online Fabric Store, contacted me. She wanted to know if I would like to make a garment from their wonderful fabric You should have seen how fast I could reply to that email!
That is when the hard part began, selecting one fabric.
Online Fabric store has such a selection of Gingham fabric, five pages when you click on that link. My choice was between a 1/4" gingham and 1/8" gingham . My final selection was Robert Kaufman Lavender Carolina Gingham Fabric and you talk about gorgoues to see in person and the feel of the fabric is lucious. I am thrilled with my color choice and delighted in my finished garment.
I used Buttercik 5526 to make my blouse.
I have made this before in white and it is one of my favorite white blouses to wear
I started a couple days ago on my blouse and after a few hours of sewing here and there, I had a finished gingham blouse but I had left off the pockets. My gingham blouse needed pockets, so another 45 minutes of sewing and I really had a finished gingham blouse.
I am sure my new blouse will be favorite this spring.
I want to thank Online Fabric Store and their gingham material for this opportunity.
Now, since I like the gingham look so much, I might need another blouse. I think in 1/4" gingham this time but what color?
Are you planning to make a gingham blouse? If so what color?
