Sewing the Spring/ Summer trends

2018 is a year for new things!

The I AM Juliette Blouse

So I’m back again with a new make for the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network! I chose the Juliette blouse from I AM Patterns. It’s a simple boxy blouse with cute little collar, short sleeves and a button up back. It only uses a metre of fabric so it’s the perfect make for when you’ve got that little […]
