Sewing THE Blouse...

You may recall this post on the perfect blouse pattern...
Well, I have begun.

It's actually the easiest blouse I've ever made, with only 4 pieces, which makes me happy. The fabric is a nice ivory with a bit of stretch and I love the peter pan collar. The instructions say to "ease" the sleeves onto the bodice, but I decided to use pintucks instead, so the sleeves are kind of "puffy" at the shoulder.

I still need to do the button holes, sew on the buttons and hem the sleeves and the bottom, but so far, I'm pretty pleased.

Stay tuned for further progress...


  1. 'ease' baffles me. I can never get sleeves to sit right! Looking good so far.

  2. This blog is very interesting and entertainment. i liked a lot. i think it is very dinamic. Absolutely wonderful and notable I was impressive with all this amazing information.
