Sewing in Progress

The clock is running down...one day left before it's BACK TO WORK!  So I got serious about doing some sewing. 

First I made a muslin for a Sencha blouse (from Colette Patterns).  And good thing I did because it was a simply horrible silhouette on me.  This is not a pattern drafted for A-cuppers with pot bellies.  Too bad, it's a lovely design.

So I then I turned to another indie pattern: Anouk by Victory Patterns.  I'd like a new blouse, please!


With time running out, I didn't have time to muslin and to do it before Monday, so I took a risk and cut directly into my fashion fabric.  Crossing my fingers!

  1. I haven't heard of this pattern, but since your figure description describes me to a T maybe I should look into it! I'm looking forward to seeing the new creation, all your makes are thoughtful and pretty and so very you :)

  2. Ah interesting! Since I am the opposite (I.e. Overly well endowed and let me tell you that's not all it's cracked up to be!) maybe I should be trying the Sencha blouse!! Looking forward to your next make.

    1. I love the design, so if you have the figure for it, you should definitely go for it! :)

  4. Too bad the Sencha didn't work. I'm currently thinking if it's a blouse pattern for me since Colette dragts for a larger cup.

    Good luck with your Anouk!

  7. Sorry to hear the first one didn't suit you. Curious to see the second--looks like a lovely design. (And thanks for introducing me to Victory Patterns!)

    1. The first one has been finished for a while, but the weather has been so crappy that I haven't taken pictures yet. I've worn it nearly every week though, so I guess you could say I'm happy! They have some pretty cool patterns, don't they? ;)
