Japanese blossom: New Look 6963

So I've been busy making another New Look 6963, this time with a Japanese style blossom print by Tanya Whelan - Millie Moon is selling a version at the moment (not a recommendation, I've never shopped there). 

I love how wearable this shirt is! To me it's a pattern that works well with turned up jeans for a slightly retro weekend feel, but it can be worn smartened up too. At the very last moment I swapped to some pink buttons picked up at John Lewis, I think it really helps the blossom colours stand out.

Here's the sleeve detailing that drove me mad the first time around - this time it was super easy!

Do let me know what you think, how would you wear it?


  1. Fiona, you're so talented. I think this blouse is my favourite, the fabric is beautiful and really suits you. The new dress is lovely too. xx

  2. Ah thanks Clare, that's really kind of you to say! Still such a lot to learn, but I'm enjoying learning :)
