Today I wore one of my versions of the Colette Sencha blouse, and I wondered, why have I never blogged this?
I actually made this one several months ago from some of my favorite fabric in my stash. It turned out too big, but since I used some of my favorite fabric I decided to make the most of it. I folded the fabric over itself in the back and sewed it up. It isn't the prettiest from the back - but I like wearing cardigans anyway :D
|I thrifted this fabric from a second hand shop in Iowa City. I love the pattern!|
|The back has matching fabric covered buttons|
|Oh no! Sooo many wrinkles!|
|Out on the town! Apparently the fabric glows.|
Next on my sewing table....To finish the Colette Spring Palette Challenge I was suppose to make a skirt. The fabric I picked out is a beautiful blue wool, but it is way too hot for wool. I am in the mood to make some shorts, so the skirt is going on the back burner for a little while.

Last weekend my friend Jessica and I had a craft day, and started cutting out pattern pieces for the Colette Iris pattern. I made a practice pair, and they were a little snug so now I need to re-cut pattern pieces in a size 6. I bought the coolest fabric at Home Ec. The fabric has a tape measure pattern and the shorts are going to be sewing themed! I'm really excited. Jessica bought some really cool upholstery fabric with great texture. When we get done, I will have to post a picture of the two of us.
