Yup, a completed project, finally!
It seems like from now on I'll be able to dedicate a little more time to sewing, and it makes me soo happy! Yesterday I managed to finish this blouse and to make a skirt (which I'll show you soon). It's amazing how sewing something relaxes me and makes me feel accomplished. I've already written this, but I missed so much some serious sewing time.
For this blouse I used Colette's Sencha pattern, version 3 (the one with the pussy bow!). I used a silk blend which wasn't too pleasant to sew, but it's very nice to wear. I cheated a little bit in the construction: since the hem was coming horribly (because of the slippery fabric and my lack of patience) I bound the edge with black bias tape and I'm very satisfied with the result.
I used raspberry colored buttons to add some contrast. I haven't decided if I love them yet, but if I notice that they make the blouse difficult to wear, I'm always in time to change them. What do you think of them?
One thing I like about this blouse is that it's very versatile: here I'm wearing it with jeans, but it looks even better with a cute high-waisted skirt to achieve a more elegant look. What I'm not too crazy about, instead, is the fact that the neckline is a bit too high and I feel a bit constricted.
Well, one could argue that it's another black and white garment made from a Colette pattern, but I hope you'll like it anyway. :)
