So, I just sewed up this new blouse pattern from Fibremood 21 I'm going to show you how I made it and style it two ways, for Autumn!!

The pattern is brand new from Fibremood number edition 21 and is called Josephine. Josephine Dress | Fibre Mood

As you can see the Josephine is both a top and blouse, here is the most exciting stage we're all ready to get making!

The fabric is a Viscose Challis by Minerva and can be found here >> Minerva Exclusive Celestial Motion Viscose Challis Fabric | 1273109 | Minerva

Let's crack on, the front and back bodice is cut into two sections, so were going to stitch those together, leaving a gap at the neckline

Next, we stitch the sleeves on to the front and back and join the side and under arm sleeve.

We're nearly there now, we're attaching the bias binding around the neck, leaving a gap across the front of the neck creating the little gap which is such a cute feature of the Josephine. Just the sleeves and bottom to hem now and were all finished!!

Tada we're all finished, I hope you like my latest make, I really love my first Josephine and I know I'm going to make it again, maybe the dress version next time. I love to style it up like this with some nice black fitted trousers, I think it's really stylish and is a great smart outfit for drinks or dinner out. I'd also wear this outfit for work.

I also think it works with some faded jeans as a more casual outfit, just chilling at home with the family or popping to the shops!

I really can't decide which way I like it styled better and I'd love to know what you think... Smart or Casual?? You choose!!
