Mermaid Teal Pendrell

I made this Pendrell blouse as part of the first project in my Colette Fall Palette Challenge. I’ve had some trouble working with silk in the past, so I was a little nervous to start cutting the fabric for this project. I’m pretty happy with results.

    I’m doing a little fabric research before staring on my Pendrell, and I love how yours looks in silk! Not that I would have the courage to cut into some. Well done you!

      Thank you, I was really nervous about, but I’m proud of how it turned out. (There are a few flaws that would have been avoided had I not used silk – but I’m still happy). If you are looking for suggestions on fabric, Tasia made one out of a knit fabric that turned out really well, but that may also be tricky to work with. I soft cotton with a lot of drape would work really well, and be easy to work with. Good luck on your Pendrell, I can’t wait to see it.

    With all this Halloween madness, people forget about the rest of the projecs. What a find, the fabric, the patern, the colour. This top cannot be left unobserved, it is beautiul, and you look happy wearing it.
