Cream blouse

On my cutting table at the moment is this cute little blouse, I am making view B without the ruffle.
I have cut it out and done quite a bit of stitching on this, here is what I have done so far.

 I love these amazing fit patterns as they allow you to alter the pattern to fit your figure, I have quite a full bust but narrow shoulders so I am able to get a really good fit using this pattern. I cut a size 12 and followed for the DD cup size. 
 I did wonder how the pocket would look trying to get a good fit over all the bust fabric but it looks quite nice.  The fabric choice is not my favourite, it is a little too thin for my liking I usually like a crisper cotton that is a little bit thicker but it looks ok. I think I used a quilting weight cotton when I made the pink blouse and that did turn out just perfect.    

 This is the finishing on the inside, I did a zigzag stitch and cut close to the stitching for a neat finish, mmmm, I feel it is now time I bought myself an overlocker.

 I will be putting the sleeves in this over the next few days and then doing the buttonholes, hopefully it should be finished soon and then I will be cutting out a dress pattern, I bought the fabric quite a while ago for a summer dress for this year. 

If you would like to take a peek at my updated craft  room photos you can see them over at my cross stitch blog here.   

Until next time................. happy stitching!

That's looking lovely. I'll have to check out the amazing fit patterns, I often find I have to cut a different size front compared to the back
