The sleeves are in!
I am so happy with the fit on this blouse, it really is a very nice and so comfortable. I am not too happy with the fabric as it is a bit thin but I think the blouse will look nice with a pair of jeans.
The sleeves are quite detailed, there are little pleats in the top and there is a looped cuff, I really enjoyed the process of making them.
I did not have enough cream thread to make the buttonholes and stitch up the hem, I have ordered some via the internet and it should arrive shortly then I can get it finished. I have been having a play around with hand worked button holes made in silk thread but they were a little too thick for this fabric, so machine stitched buttonholes are my choice for this finish.
When I have finished the blouse next week I will be cutting out another one in a lovely bright pink fabric.
I have made these gift labels for you to download and print, just attach ribbon or string and attach them to your creations to add that little something! I think you can use a 2" circle punch to cut them out.
Until next time - happy stitching!
