Art Gallery Garden of Opulence

The newest Art Gallery Fabrics collection by Bari J., Garden of Opulence, is here and full of gorgeous prints.

I got to play with this fun rayon, Fawn Day Two. I can’t get enough of AGF rayon. It’s one of my favorite fabrics to work with and wear. That drape- c’mon!!! I love the flow and weight. It’s lightweight but not too slinky and fidgety when sewing.

I sewed up Burda Cotton Blouse 113. It was my first Burda pattern and I learned a lot. Sometimes I get a little cocky but this pattern brought me back to reality! This pattern assumes you are an experienced sewist and the instructions are minimal. I’m to the point that I read a patterns instructions through before diving in then refer back to them as needed so I thought I’d be good with this pattern. Let’s just say, my seam ripper and I spent a lot of time together while sewing this top.

I think the final shirt is so pretty and I’d love to give the pattern another go. It’s such a great pattern/fabric combination!
