A DIY gift: Sutton Blouse True Bias in Lili

My first post after summer holidays is about a DIY gift. My mum turned 60 at the beginning of August and my brother Daniele and I decided to give her a handmade garment. My brother gave the fabric and I took care of the pattern and the making.

The pattern is Sutton Blouse by True Bias Patterns and the fabric is Lili, the modal fabric by Atelier Brunette I bought on Supercut website. I like the print of the fabric from the beginning, however I have to say that I really fell in love with it only when I touched it for the first time. It’s very soft and silky. This is one of those cases in which photography can’t convey the beauty of the fabric.

Making this blouse has been quite simple (if you want to train for French seams, this is the right pattern for you!) and I didn’t made any variation to the original pattern. Being a loose blouse, I didn’t need to have a fitting (this was very important because it was supposed to be a surprise :))

I took these pictures of my beautiful mom during a picnic/lunch-break at Parco Sempione in Milan on a hot day of August…
