Yellow Violet Top

My new Violet blouse!

Last weekend I finished my first Violet blouse from Colette Patterns. I love this pattern! The peter pan collar and the back yoke are both so sweet. The yellow fabric I used is a quilting cotton and the pink floral fabric of the back yoke is from a vintage pillow case.  

We went to the Riverfront in Dubuque and the Mines of Spain to enjoy the first nice weather of spring and to show off my new top.

The muddy Mississip'

I found a handsome pile of driftwood.

This is a vintage brooch from Mexico. I like the contrast of the dark silver next to the pale yellow fabric.

Surveying the riverfront.

I found a nice resting place.

Earlier that day we went antiquing and I found this darling cake-stand. Josh and I have been gathering miscellaneous vintage items for our wedding next spring. We are going for a vintagy, eclectic feel with lots of spring flowers!

I love the delicately painted purple roses and the dainty gold accents.

Today I started my muslin for the new Colette Laurel pattern - so far it looks like it is going to fit (fingers crossed). Have a great week!


  1. Cute Top! I have been meaning to make a Violet or two. The cake stand is beautiful!

  2. Thanks! I really love the pattern - you should make it!
