Good Sunday everybody. Hope you are having such a lazy time as I have! ;)
Not that there is nothing to do...but it is fine to keep things slow from time to time, isn't it?
Anyway, at least I have been able to take some photos of my Banksia. Promised already some time before...sigh... but here we go!
The Bankia pattern by Megan Nielsen is available for more than one year already, I guess. I saw lots of versions by my favorite bloggers all arround the world. But somehow it took me quite a while, before I decided to purchase this pattern. Now, I do not regret a thing! The collar is adorable and the whole instructions easy to follow.
Only downside with my version is the delicate fabric I used...I cannot even say what proper material it is. On the bolt, it simply stated 'blouse fabric'...hmm...anyway, it is lightweight and nice to wear, but it is very difficult to handle while sewing. There is definitely some synthetic included, which makes the fabric stretch slightly. This made me crazy sewing the placket. You will well see all the wrinkles arround the placket. I tried that one several times and even ironing did not help.
Anyway, I will wear this one with pride! ;) Next version will be definitely cotton. :D
Wishing you all a beautiful Sunday with love, family, friends and good food!!!
