So here's the blouse I mentioned I was working on! I was waiting until I could get a few more closeup pics but I haven't been bothered to do that yet, and the desire to blog may not come upon me again for a while. So I'll edit the other pics in when I finally convince Jane to put on the blouse and let me photograph her.
This is my third attempt at this blouse and I've ALMOST got it perfect. Almost!!! I just can...not...get...that...collar....right!!!!! Argh! However, I think the cuteness of the ricrac disguises the messiness of the collar.
I think I have got the fit pretty much perfect now. I made the bust darts 1cm longer and the fit issues seemed to magically disappear! Hurrah!
I love everything about it...the sweet little sleeves, the cool purple buttons ($1 from an op shop), the awesome print, but most of all the cutesy wutesy collar! I just wanna wear this EVERY DAY!
I wore it to work yesterday with my favourite skirt of the moment- I picked it up from an op shop a couple of months ago and I love the shape and colour. The boots had to be thrown in the bin last night- I hadn't worn them for a few years and the crappy fake leather was flaking off.
