I just bought some beautiful liberty lawn cotton. I'd like to make a blouse. I'm 39 if that matters. But please show me some of your favorite patterns that really work well with this lovely fabric!

It's hard to get used to wovens and the "binding" effect after knits, but I'm wanting to try the new lawns and onion skins too--Fabric.com just yielded some new ones.

I have S2255 to try, may alter to a soft curved neckline for coolness, without the collar. These cap sleeves are doubled, maybe could be a single thickness.

I just made a wearable muslin of the Alma blouse:

Sewaholic alma

It's really lovely, feminine without being too young (I'm 38), and sewed up easy. Tasia designs for a slim pear shape figure, and I'm a true hourglass, but I size up if between sizes and do a fake FBA (reduce seam allowance below armpit) on all sewaholic woven patterns, and it fits me perfectly. I will be using my liberty lawn next time around...

I don't know how much you bought, and I assume it was not inexpensive. If you have enough, I think you should consider a standard button up the front, collared blouse. Make it just slightly bigger, than fitted. You can wear this in the winter under a sweater, or over a T or camisole, or just as a blouse with jeans or a nice pair of slacks. My friend has a nice high end designer liberty print blouse, and she wears it all the time, with skirts, jeans, slacks, etc. Dressed up and down.

I have way too many yards to count, and I will never use them up, but I will die trying!

A button down blouse would be pretty. Didn't JCrew have a liberty blouse for $$$$. Or you could try the Scout pattern (I can't recall who makes it), or the Collette sencha would be pretty.

I seconde the motion. Cuts down on the cutesy side that Liberty inevitably has.

I would even suggest a camp shirt style with collar and stand, pockets and flaps, the works.

I have a nice piece and I just downloaded this pattern from the burda site.

I'm 42 and I think that there are quite a few prints that work for those of us who aren't children. Which print did you get?

I bought the Phoebe print in red/blue off of etsy. I bought all she had left because I loved it, it is only 50", which will obviously limit what I choose for a pattern. here is a pic of Phoebe

How about the Colette Violet pattern? I used it for a Liberty print and was happy with it. For what it's worth, I made the collar smaller, very easy to do, and shortened the sleeves considerably.
