Le mystérieux blouse

Added May 7, 2009

Beaufort , South...






Be gentle with me ladies & gents this is my second sewing creation! (I dare not even post my first.)
This is a mystery shirt because I don’t have a clue regarding the contents of the material. I spent a whole two dollars on it.
I think that it may be a cotton mix. I do like the subtle, muted colour, and print.
I highly recommend this shirt pattern, the sleeves are puffy and stay off the arm making it a very cool shirt in hot weather.

I lengthened the shirt so I could belt it.

    Lovely blouse, especially for your second creation! I really like the combination of the sleeves and the belt. What pattern did you use?

    waow! finally! Great shirt, I would love to see you wearing it. The sleeve’s rounded shape is great and the way the sleeves gather at shoulder seam, the Mao collar. Well done lady, the fabric looks scrumptious!
