When I was in North Carolina in June, there was this great mall art exhibit of recycled materials. This quilt was in the exhibit and I'm sorry I don't have the artist's name. I think it is a really interesting use of reused fabric, especially jeans details.
It made me want to start saving old jeans to cut up, but then I realized I save too much stuff and really shouldn't add any more clutter. Maybe I could save one or two pairs of jeans...
This is the Classic Blouse #600. I absolutely fell in love with this peacock print. It has a great drape in a herringbone weave. Darts give the blouse fit and shape while still being loose enough to be comfortable. I left the front pockets off.
Button close up- plastic and very washable.
Collar and band cut in one. Quick and easy construction.
As you may know, I love using stuff I just happened to have already. So here is a blouse from fabric that I just happened to have (no idea where it came from!). It is a synthetic crepe in a diagonal dot pattern. It looked a little plain when I finished so I added 3 bias flounces to the front neck. I didn't hem them, so I'm hoping my hunch is correct that raveling shouldn't be a problem.
