One of the fabrics I picked up is this gingham and small floral stripe. You may well have seen this fabric around; it seems to be standard stock for fabric shops in the UK over the last few months. This particular colourway has black checks and vivid pink flowers.
The pattern is Butterick 4993, a late 1940s blouse pattern with dropped kimono sleeves. I've used this pattern a couple of times before, most recently for the bodice of my chambray shirt dress. It's beautifully easy to make up and only took me a couple of hours. The fact that it only has four pattern pieces helps, of course!
I used those buttons again! I love them; perfect for vintage styles. I think I need to buy more of these!
