3 yards is enough to cut out the blouse with it's very funny pattern pieces and just enough to cut the free Fringe Festival Knit Top from Fabric dot com. But only because both the front and back have seams.
I cut a 14 through the shoulders and bust, graded out to a 18 at the waist and bigger through the hips. I put in an inch and half hem and the length is just perfect.
The print is brown with orange, pink, yellow and white butterflies all over it. If I make this again - I would do something different with the sleeves - they end at a funky length and make the tie longer and possibly wider so it could be doubled. However - it was comfortable and easy to wear. I wore it with my denim pencil skirt and a white cardigan, tights and brown pumps. Unfortunately - I was home before JB - guess I need to learn to take mirror shots - or figure out the tripod, eh?
