Two blouses were made this week with this lovely swiss dot fabric I have been holding onto for ages.
It was easy to cut into it to make a blouse for Scarlet first knowing the pattern so well and loving it for many reasons. I knew how it would fit her and that I needed to cut out a size 4 and add extra length. I added a little thread loop to change up bows or go without one if desired. Simple.
Next up would be mine and though I made this blouse for myself before and was thrilled with the outcome and I wear it often I knew the sheerness was not going to be so cute on me so, I underlined it. I've lined plenty of garments but never underlined. After a quick google search I found a great tutorial on Gertie's blog which was funny because I learned of Gertie after she left me a comment on the first blouse in this style. It was very easy to follow and I found something suitable to use in my cabinet. Again, I am happy with the outcome and the fit is purrfect.
