Puff and Pencil — Tie Waist Blouse

The Tie Waist Blouse from Puff and Pencil is a simple sleeveless blouse pattern, featuring encased ties at the waist and a pull over fit. This is a fairly simple sew, and uses very small fabric meterage - our size M for Amy took just 0.6m of 12oz Patchwork Denim – Indigo. The pattern itself doesn't state a difficulty level, but we would recommend this for a beginner with a little experience. We did feel the instruction manual would benefit from more illustrations to support each step of the instructions, as well as a layplan for the pattern pieces and interfacing instructions. That said, this was a straightforward project, and we love how it turned out in this patchwork denim!

New to stores this week is a deadstock pure cotton patchwork denim from Japan! This heavyweight fabric has been woven in a patchwork of a classic denim twill and canvas. The combination of a dark indigo blue warp thread and an ivory weft thread combine to create a two-toned patchwork check effect denim with a sturdy structure. We have two colourways available, the indigo and monochrome shown below. Completely opaque, this is a sturdy fabric with no stretch and a matt finish ideal for jeans, jackets, overalls and jumpsuits.
