I found a few hours to sew a blouse for work, used a free pattern from Love Sewing. I have made this once before in the summer and decided to make some changes, the tie a lot wider, sleeves longer and cut a lower curved from and back hem.
I’ve used a white oxford shirting this time and the tie works better now its fuller. The sleeves were elbow length, loose and I wanted a wrist length – slightly puffed sleeve.
I used elastic in the cuff, although if I make this again will add a tiny cuff. Delighted with the finish and its perfect for work, just needs a good pressing with starch. Next make is The Sport-Luxe Bomber Jacket from the Makers Atelier for the monster in a lovely warm boiled wool. We met Frances at the Selvedge Fair last Friday and her patterns and designs are fabulous – a small capsule collection that is very easy to wear and make hopefully! More on that this weekend.
