Sewing high

Blouse2 Yee haw, a FO of the sewing variety.  This easy little blouse is a Built by Wendy pattern that I made out of some 70s looking cotton from the stash.  It’s Simplicity #4111.

The sewing up of this blouse was pretty straight forward.  No special tricks or skills necessary to make this pattern.

I did find that the neckline is lower than I’d have wanted and I have to wear a tank underneath – or else I’d be yanking the top up all day and trying not to show the world my boobages.  Maybe I should make a size smaller next time, or actually take the time to measure the pattern to determine its finished dimensions.  Crazy talk.

After I finish a project I like to figure out what I want to make next.  Right now I’m baffled.  I want to use up stash fabrics so I immediately get ideas for things I’d have to go out and buy fabric for.  It’s contrary in my head ya know.  It’s also hard to pick because I’ve got a buttload of clothes already. I know that’s not the reason I sew, but it does factor in.  Maybe a pencil skirt or a fun camo skirt or maybe another Built by Wendy top – 3964 tunic with funky knit fabric?  I’ve got fabrics for all those…

Maybe I’ll just knit on Ariann and save my strength for eating stuffing and pie.  Happy Thanksgiving friends!
