Yellow Wrap Blouse



I cut down my wrap dress pattern to make a blouse. The fabric is an unlikely sheer wool gabardine that I bought a couple of seasons ago because I was charmed by the quality of the wool (while somewhat horrified by the color). Little did I know that this powerful yellow would be this season's favorite. It's such a light fabric that it's been good for even warmish spring days.

Beautiful! How perfect for spring.

j jill has a light weight layering tank that is exactly that color, if you are interested. I bought it and have nothing to wear it with! It doesn't match last year's yellow, which was much more muted.

Looks great Anna. I used to say yellow was my favourite colour, when I was a child. I'm not sure what happened to change that...but that yellow would almost have me change back. It's beautiful.

I adore wrap blouses -- such a classic (and slenderizing style). You'll look very classy, my dear, wearing it about. And the color... so cheery and not horrifying at all. Just consider yourself a Spring bloom.

I looks great! When I saw the picture, before I read the text, I knew it was from that wonderful wrap dress pattern!

Very cheery color!

I love that shade of yellow, actually! I don't wear it next to my face - wish I could. I adore the graceful ruffle on the elbows.

I've been eyeing that pattern for months, since you first posted your lavender and cranberry creations. I asked for it for my 33rd birthday, but my mom isn't sure it will look good on me, especially for the price. (this is a lady who is able to dream up a dress and create a pattern for it by cutting up old newspapers.)

I'm short and stocky. Do you think that pattern would look well on a short and stocky frame?

Also, have you found the initial investment in a pattern and material worth $75?

Thanks!

Monica

That is so pretty! I love the bright yellow color! That flared sleeve style is my absolute favorite!

It's lovely. The nice thing about high-quality wool is that after a couple of years, when the color just doesn't "sing" to you anymore, it will take dye very well.

My compliments on your lovely blouse and your lovely blog. Both are beautiful.
