the last one, honest

It is just that these one piece blouses are so easy. And I think this one is my favourite.

The fabric is by 'Cloud 9', nice eh?. I kept the sleeves a bit shorter this time to make them a bit more cap- shaped. And, if the truth be told, because the fabric was not wide enough to take the pattern.

I really like the result. I finished off the sleeves with my 50mm bias binding maker.

I then took it for a cup of tea and a piece of cake to this wonderful new place.
Raystitch used to be on-line only, and where I got the fabric from originally, see:

But now it is a real life shop.
Look at these shelves:

All this and they sell cake too.

If you are anywhere near Essex Road in Islington, North London, get yourself down there.
I couldn't help but make a modest purchase:

This lovely organic cotton jersey, for maybe just one more top:

And this ballet dancers fat quarter from Kokka, to be part of a quilt for my older daughter one fine day.
