When Eleonore released her collection of Deer and Doe patterns I literally fell in love. Her designs  are contemporary with a touch of vintage and retro inspiration and the entire brand is beautifully packaged and marketed.

The first Deer and Doe pattern that I made was the Airelle blouse. I had grey cotton left from my stash which I used as a wearable muslin. It is not very original but it was a good way of testing the brand as every pattern brand is different, especially the sizing and fitting.

The blouse was a breeze to make! The instructions are extremely clear and everything just comes together the way it is supposed to. I used grey cotton voile for the bodice and black cotton for the collar, sleeve edging and shoulder piece. Both were from my leftover stock.

I’m already thinking about the next one I will make and I think it will have gold or silver piping on the shoulders…
