The last month has been absolutely crazy due to work however I have been able to get 10 – 15 minutes most mornings in my sewing room and this is the result.
This fabric has been in my stash since 2009 when my sewing buddies and I headed to Melbourne for 4 days of fabric shopping.
Then when I decided to do an “Evening Collection” for my SWAP this fabric just had to have its day.
I took me a while to work out what design I wanted to use and it was during one of my Pinterest sessions I found this wonderful top by Lover and realised that the lines were very much the same as my TNT blouse pattern.
Luckily the lace has a two way pattern, so I could use the scallop edge effectively for all the pieces.
Again there is not much to tell on this blouse, except I have used French Seams, a purchased satin bias tape for the neckline, Hong Kong finish for the armholes using sun silky, with an invisible zipper in the left hand side seam.
And here it is:
|Nearly the same pose!|
|Satin bias tape binding on the neckline|
|Satin bias tape handstitched to the wrong side and french seams|
|Hong Kong finish on invisible zip and armholes|
This is my 6th piece for SWAP, I really need to find some more time to sew, especially as the Trench has only been cut out!
