Sewing Like Crazy
This is the first blouse I have sewn in…well…ever. That’s not entirely true, but it may as well be. I’ve never made one that turned out well enough to actually wear. I’ve been sticking to skirts because they are easy, but what’s a wardrobe with 9 million skirts and nothing to where with them?
I am stash-busting and using a beautiful grey linen. I love linen so much, and I am very please with it’s progress so far. Making a muslin version first was incredibly helpful and allowed me to figure out the tricky bits.
The pattern is a vintage McCall’s which I bought through Midvale Cottage on Etsy. I subcribe to here shop feed (dangerous) and have purchased a lot of vintage patterns from her.
I am sewing View A, although my collar is not as crisp. I love the use of tucks on this pattern instead of darts and the pleats around the neck. I am about 80% done. I need to do a little finish work like tacking down facings…and the buttons. Buttons. Wish me luck!
