Simplicity 3777

Sorry, but I can’t magically write sewing puns as well as you all do. As promised, though, I finished my Simplicity 3777 blouse! I started this a while ago and used my first muslin, put it aside for a long time because I had to make bound buttonholes, and now that I’m running into them everywhere decided to give it a go. My practice buttonhole was perfect, and when I went to do my blouse, it looked so good but I forgot to do the buttonholes. By that time, I had already sewn closed the facing. So my buttonholes aren’t perfect.

This was once again very big, and I thought that when I did the muslin it would be ok, but it turned out still pretty big. It actually fit me much differently than I was used to: the waist was supposed to be too big according to the measurements, but it was perfect and the bust and above the waist were large.

I also did my first covered buttons, and they turned out very nicely.

I made this to go with a mustard colored skirt I made, but that doesn’t fit me right now.

Let me know what you think!

  • What a fun blouse! I would never know you had so many issues in the construction if you hadn’t said something, because it looks great. You could wear that with ’50′s pencil or circle skirt, as well as modern blue jeans. Very cool!
