Oh my goodness, the summertime heat has arrived in the Bay Area. Time to pull out a wide-brimmed chapeau and top it off with a parasol to hide from the sun.
This is not the perfect blouse for me (still searching!), but I do like it quite a bit, and it gets a lot of wear.
The watercolor print was something that I fell in love with after seeing it on fabric.com, and it turned out to be even better than what I was expecting when it showed up at my door (don’t you just love when that happens!).
I just wish I had purchased more of the fabric while it was available. But I did manage to squeeze a dress and this blouse out of the yardage, so that’s something!
The rayon with just a hint of stretch is the perfect fabric for staying cool. That reminds me . . . I have more of this fabric in another print . . . I may have to do something about that . . . just as soon as it cools off, and I once again have the energy to move.
