Finally I finished one of my sewing projects! Well, what can I write about it? I used a modern pattern which I altered. This is actually my third blouse using this pattern. If you want to see the other blouses click here and here. I added a bow, a slightly bigger one then in one of the other blouses. And I added a puffed sleeve. The circle skirt I made a couple of months ago. Underneath I wear a petticoat which I made myself as well.
The fabric is the most slippery fabric I ever used. Its a slightly sheer polyester. Normally I try to avoid synthetic fabric as much as I can, but this time was an exception. A while ago, I got lots of fabric from my mother in law. This one is from that stash. And I fell in love with the print. Really, I couldn’t resist! I knew immediately that this fabric would be perfect for a 50s inspired blouse.
Cutting and sewing the fabric was quite a challenge. Not only the slipperyness (is that a real word??) but also the pins and needles I used left little holes in the fabric. This means when something went wrong I couldn’t redo it all the time, because it would show the little holes.
(Somehow my lettertype changed half way my blog and I’m unable to change it)
I hope you like it!
