Remember my Betty Draper blouse I made last summer? I used floral Liberty Tana lawn fabric which was soooo easy to work with and lovely to wear. I've always been a big fan of Liberty lawn, especially the classic floral prints, so I'm itching to make another one for late spring.
This is a very simple, button-back blouse that would really showcase a busy floral fabric. If you're curious as to how it looks made up, Marie has made a knockout leopard print version here, along with a full pattern review. I'm going to add bust darts to my version, but even with this adjustment, I think it will be an easy make and a lovely, fun blouse for the spring.

That should give me a few sleepless nights... In the meantime, Susan from Sewbox, has very kindly offered a metre of any Liberty fabric from her shop as a giveaway to one of my readers, wahay! It doesn't have to be Liberty Lawn, she also stocks Liberty Jersey, Cord and Poplin - the full range can be found here. To enter, just leave a comment on this post telling me which Liberty fabric from Sewbox you'd choose if you're the winner. The giveaway is open worldwide and closes at midnight GMT on Thursday 6th March. The winner will be chosen at random.
