This was my first blouse and my first time sewing satin, which was a challenge. The non-understandable instructions did the rest ;) The ruffles were a bit difficult, because of the flowing fabric. Made some alterations for a better fit. The hem-line is shit, I think I’ll do it again (I think is absolutely impossible to make the stitches for the hemline invisible on satin so I think I’ll topstich it). Some arm movements are not so good in this blouse, so today my first time wearing it (right after finishing it ;)) the seams at the back gave way (correct english?). It took me very long to do this so finally I’m glad I finished it. It’s not perfect, but ok. Looking at those photos I uploaded I think the sleeves hang down a little bit too much.
