While sewing on my Emily-Blouse I needed a small and easy project just to not get too frustrated. :) So, here it is. As I’ll start an internship at the German Bundestag (the parliament) on monday and need something to wear, the Desira is perfect. I added sleeves (it’s actually the first pattern I ever dared to change…) and I really like the blouse. Sorry for the bad picture, but I just wanted to take a picture before moving out of my flat tomorrow. My sewing machine is one of the last things here that aren’t already packed into boxes. :)
Hmpf, somehow the picture turned left while uploading and I can’t change it. Args. Well, I hope you can still get an idea about the way the blouse looks like.
