Thanks so much for all of your comments on my plaid dress – it’s quite reassuring to know that we all seem to be in the same boat when it comes to sewing with plaid. We love the outcome, but it’s a long hard slog to get there!
Let’s talk about this blouse that I’ve named ‘The Afternoon Blouse’.
Having said that, I was really quite proud of myself when I made this blouse from start to finish on Boxing day afternoon last year. This is number 2 on my sewing list now complete.
The blouse was really very simple and quick to make up. I made one change in the pattern which involved pinching out quite a lot of fullness from the bust area (about 2 inches) before tracing my pattern ready to use.
