  • Peplumed Blouse from Vintage-Look Silk - Nicole

    December 4, 2012 by Britex Fabrics

    Nicole from the Bay area blog, Nicole At Home made a charming peplumed blouse from this vintage-look floral imported Britex Fabrics’ stretch silk. She says, “During my recent visit to Britex I purchased a beautiful stretch silk floral fabric, the most expensive piece of fabric I've ever purchased (but so worth it!).  I only got a small amount, with some kind of sleeveless shell in mind.  After making the Minna blouse by Salme patterns, their Peplum blouse caught my eye.” We love the effort that Nicole made with the fit, from decreasing the flounce of the peplum, to deepening the arm scythe, to decreasing the darts.
