Obsessed with Plaid Blouse

Added Mar 17, 2009

Somewhere, World...






Again I adapted the pattern of a garment I bought at H&M and again I used plaid fabric - it’s just the cheapest in the store, seems like nobody else around here likes it.
I fell in love with the neckline of this garment and so I decided it was time to make my first blouse. It wasn’t as hard as I had expected, but we’ll have to see how long the buttonholes will stay intact :
) I only made some minor changes, mostly to the sleeves.

Material Notes

Lightweight cotton with a little elastic and tiny metal threads woven in

    I LOVe that plaid, the colour is great- and it almost looks like it has a kinda sheen to it? I’d be obsessed with it too :o)

    I really like the small gathering on the bust line. Very cool. It gives it a more fitted look. Love the colors!

    I really like it. The fit is good, and the neckline is quite fabulous. And of course, plaid is always awesome.
