The Emporer's Mum's new clothes

New blouse. I had a conversation with Suzy last week about the joy of graduating from A-Line skirts in ones sewing life. This is fun and I am proud.

The pattern is from Ottobre Issue 2/2008. Not only have I graduated from A-line skirts but I also managed to tweak this pattern from a button front blouse. With puffed sleeves. Puffed sleeves! I had to play with the neckline a little and I think it still needs a bit of work. And maybe some shaping to tame the boobage.

But all in all I'm pretty happy with my first 'real' article of clothing...and it's for me.

Now I think it's time for a trip to Tessuti for some nice fabric and an attempt at the button front blouse.
