For the love of ruffles – another Chemise Eddy

After making my first Chemise Eddy last month,  I immediately knew that I had to make another one. Since first seeing the Chemise Eddy pattern from mimoi, I had imagined  making it in this very fabric, with the flounce ruffle down the front. But as you know I’m a little wary of ruffles. So for my first Chemise Eddy last month I made a different version, to test fit and see how I felt about ruffles. What can I say? I think ruffles might be my new thing.

Almost immediately I cut out my next Eddy. I made a size 42/40 again, and used the same alterations as last time – namely a dart coming down towards the bust and the redrawn armholes. The sleeves and back are a size 40. I’ve had this fabric in my stash for over two years and kept changing my mind about what I wanted to make. But just I love the flounce ruffle with this fabric and can’t get over how good it looks. Plus I’ve had these great little shirt buttons in my stash from textile garden which went just perfectly.

I had planned to have the back gathered, but then decided it was already perhaps a bit big, so ended up putting a seam down the center back to take in the excess fabric. It may actually be one of my favorite shirts!

Project 1 of 5 – using scraps, remnants and/or stashed fabrics, before purchasing anything new.
