It's got volume, ruffles, and a quirky print! Check out my version of the Mariposa blouse in a floral Tana lawn from Liberty Fabrics.
Flower Patchwork Top
Last month, I decided to sew a holiday dress for myself, and I even finished it on time (woot!).

The beautiful floral fabric dates to the late fifties, and I found it in a Bellingham antique shop [...]
