Vintage Blouse

A couple of months ago, I joined a sew-along. I thought it would be a good way to stretch my new skills. It was hosted by Seamstress Erin and I thought I’d share what I accomplished with you all.

  • Wow, looks great! I love that pattern. I used the jacket part of that pattern to make a kimono-sleeve Chanel-style quilted jacket, and it turned out really well.

  • This is such a pretty blouse!

    I’m always forgetting some small thing, like a zipper, buttons, or elastic that stops me right before the end… lol. O.o

    • Yea, my goal is to be more organized so that I can just finish a project in one go. But I always seem to neglect something, lol.

  • The blouse is lovely! I was also in that sew-along, but I wonder…Was there ever a “parade-post” with all the finished blouses?
