Remember when I told you guys I had straw hat fever? This was another of the straw hats I snatched up! I was quite done buying hats when this one popped up on Etsy and I couldn't resist it! The inside is marked genuine Panama, though this isn't a typical shape for a traditional Panama hat. The jaunty shape, the finely woven straw, and the wonderful net veiling all screamed summer riding outfit to me, though today I ended up styling it more safari ready than equestrienne.
This was actually the first "real" blouse I made from my short kimono sleeved blouse pattern. The other two I made first were trial runs. This amazing fern print batik caught my eye while I was shopping for other things at my favorite local fabric store. I used carved coconut button down the back and this has ended up being my favorite blouse yet! I just adore this fabric!
I have a lot of time for sewing this week so I am hoping to get a few new dresses done, I'll show you all the results soon!
