Description

My second version of Sewaholic’s Belcarra Blouse is one size larger than the first. I’m still working at making nice baby hems and bound openings, but it’s wearable despite the wonkiness. I spent some time not liking the pin tucks. The stitching felt sloppy and they were wavy, not smooth and neat and flat. As it turns out, I rather like the lettuce effect they have.

Material Notes

The fabric is a beautiful sea green color cotton/silk blend voile. The warp lines are a teal blue and the weft is a lovely pale yellow green resulting in a fabric that reads soft and light and smooth as cotton, but with the color dimension and sheen of dupioni.

    Thank you! It’s just opaque enough that I don’t need anything underneath it.
