Well I’m stuck at home on the couch with the flu, so I guess now would be a good time to catch up on my blogging! You might have caught a picture of my Bruyere a couple of months ago on Instagram. I promptly took pictures of it, have worn it quite a few times, but never got around to blogging it!
This Deer and Doe Bruyere top is by far my most favorite make and also the one I am the most proud of! I very hesitantly purchased the pattern due to the fact that it is labeled as “advance”, but after seeing so many amazing versions I just couldn’t resist. After sewing it up, I really think this pattern is more intermediate than advance. I really took my time putting it together and I can therefore not so modestly report that you could pick my Bruyere off the rack at JCrew and not think twice that it was handmade. I am PROUD, very proud!
The only thing I’m not sure of is how fitted this top is supposed to be. Mine is not super fitted through the waist. I am fine with the fit, but I have seen a lot of versions that look more fitted than mine. I’m thinking I’m going to grade down a size through the waist for my next one.
The fabric is Robert Kaufman Chambray Dot in Indigo. I absolutely love this fabric! I used it for my Marigold Dress and I’m still not sick of it. I really want to use it again for a blazer and a pair of shorts.
Sorry if this post is a little brief and lacking in details, my brain is a little foggy with the flu! Hopefully I’ll be better soon, because I have a project I’ll be sharing as part of Selfish Sewing Week next week!
