Blouse factory

Just a short post to let you all know I'm still on planet earth. While I haven't been doing much blogging due to regular interstate commutes to see my mother who has been in poor health, I've been churning out blouses from my TNT blouse pattern McCalls 5433.  This one is in navy blue silk with gorgeous filagree silver vintage buttons.  I've also made a crisp white one. 

Now I know that they say that a crisp white blouse is a wardrobe must have.  But frankly mine leaves me a little cold.  It is beautifully made, the fabric first quality, I just look frumpy in it.

Not so my DD, who looks gorgeous in just about anything.  I copied this blouse from her favourite Zara shirt.  The skirt is also self drafted.  You have no idea the joy that 40 cms of ice blue corduroy can give a young girl.  She looks pretty cool don't you think?

I started work on a new Burda jacket today and am very impressed with the results so far.  Pics shortly. 

Happy sewing ladies...and gents!
