Sencha blouse

Et voila!

Admire my buttons!

The instructions called for pattern weights - I improvised 

I learnt catchstitch!

Check out the accuracy of that tuck!

Both the pattern (from Colette Patterns) and the fabric (from Saints and Pinners) were a joy to work with

All it needs now is one last press...

  13. Thanks so much for your nice comments. The fabric is VERY green but I love it so! frk.bustad, the pencil skirt is from Topshop - I'm not sure if you can see but it's dark blue denim...and VERY tight!

  15. This looks great on you! Do the neck tucks provide more shaping or a better drape on a smaller figure? I'd like to make this, and it looks like you and I have similar builds.

  19. So gorgeous! Those tucks are brilliant. You did a brilliant job with those buttonholes. It took me about 3 years of sewing to work up the courage to do buttonholes!

  23. Are the neck tucks your own invention? They make all the difference to the style. And I think your sleeves are longer too...? Gorgeous!
