Here it is the last interview/blog post for 2013 with another talented and super crazy cool sewist from the blogosphere! But its not the last of me folks, i have some cool stuff still come here on the blog even though we are getting super close to Christmas!Argh exciting :)
FYI if you are on Instagram you can follow me at Instagram/ bluegingerdoll and if you're not on Instagram i totally recommend you get on there ASAP there is a massive sewing community on there, it's where all the cool kids hang out these day, ha! I also have an inkling that it will become the way for blogging, an instant photo of your just finished sewing project,hell yeah!
Julie was kind enough to answer a few questions about her Mae blouse for me, so read on and enjoy:
What type of fabric did you use? What inspired your choice of fabric?
I used a cotton by a french fabric designer I love "Atelier brunette".
I had some fabric left (I made some clothes when she start the collection). I chose this one
because I wanted to do something retro-modern and with some poetry And have a top to wear every day !
Did your Mae blouse live up to the image you had in your mind?Yes, I love this pattern ! All the details, collar, sleeves and back buttons. It's exactly what I thought. The first time I saw this pattern was on Paunnet blog, and so I then followed Bluegingerdoll patterns. It was on my pinterest board, and I decide to make it when I saw the pdf version was available. I thought It was a good way to see if I can to make your patterns. I prefer paper patterns. So now I'm ready to do the Billy jean dress
How did you decide to reflect your personal style in the pattern?
I think the fabric choice is very important and of course how you'll wear it ! With a skirt or trousers, flat shoes or stilettos... So it's not only one piece of clothing,it is also how you wear it !
Tell us a bit about your making process, any tweaks you made?
I loved do the Mae blouse ! I had no problems following the sew along instructions (very good practice when you don't speak english very well ) I especially appreciate the back construction with perfect definitions.
What thoughts do you have about the project?LOVE!!!
Are you planning any future Mae blouses?
Yes, of course, maybe a stylish (chic, smart) version with silk or a dress version why not.
