The Aurora is designed for light weight woven fabrics and has so many options. You can make a blouse, a tunic or a dress with long sleeves or short and a regular collar or a bow collar. Phew thats a lot!
As you can see I obviously made a blouse with long sleeves and the bow collar. My fabric is a bit to busy to show off the details in the pattern, but I love it!
Since this is rather loose fitting I made a size 36. I added a little bit maybe 2 – 3 cm to the length of both the bodice and the sleeves.
The fabric I used is this one from Miss Matatabi it is a lovely rayon lawn blend. It is so soft and nice to the touch and the colors are so vivid. A little tip to my fellow members of fabric anonymous, through November 19th Miss Matatabi is offering a flat rate international shipping of $15 on orders over $100. Do you think I went back and ordered some more? Duh!!
And to enable you even more The Aurora is still on sale for only $19. You should go grab it fast because it’s one of those classic patterns you can use over and over again and get so many different looks out of. I’ll be back with my short sleeve version soon.
