Ruffled Plaid Blouse

I am so glad I’ve finished this long lasting project. And even more I am glad that it was worthy not to give up because I don’t like to stick into sewing of one item for long time. I do like what I get from this pattern and the great idea to make a romantic blouse of plaid fabric. Sewing the ruffle made me postpone the process few times but I won :-) To make the blouse I chose soft and thick enough to wear the blouse in winter fabric. To make the cuffs band, sleeves’ cut bias bindings and the upper collar I found the remnants of silk with suede surface that was in fashion many years ago, forgot its name.
The blouse is very comfortable and looks well both with trousers and a skirt.
I like it very much!!!
My tips for the sewing are here

All the jewelry were made by myself, too.

Material Notes

Rayon cotton and p/a blend for the blouse and silk for the upper collar.

    I know what you mean, It is horrible when a plroject doesn’t work as planned and takes too long. I find that if I don’t finish a project and leave it for later, I forget about it altogether, so well done you for persevering. As for the blouse, I am not much of a ruffles fan, but this one looks lovely, plus you have the advantage to wear it without the ruffle, and I love the collarversion!! Nice material too!

      Thank you! I am exactly the same … Lately I’ve tried to empty my stash from the numerous patches and found some things cut when I was a schoolgirl…And I was sure I threw them away long ago. IT upset me and made think I am lazy… But you are right, sometimes it just doesn’t work.
