This is the first time I used my Akiko Mano book: “Jolies tenues pour fillettes coquettes”. This book is a treasure… Here is the ballon sleeves blouse, size 110. Just a bit too large for my 2yo…
The length is good but it is still a bit too wide. Because my machine is VERY basic and does not work perfectly with very fine fabric, I made french seams everywhere. This already trimmed a bit of this extra width. But not enough.
No button (because my machine and I do NOT like button hole). I used Candy pink KAM instead.
