I've finally gotten around to taking pics of my new Spring top! I had finished it over the weekend but have been so busy working with Mary on Rob's fundraiser dinner that I just haven't had the time to post it! Ed helped me take some pics yesterday morning of me actually wearing the blouse but my pasty winter skin just isn't doing it justice! Maybe we'll try again after this bod has seen a beach (Oh my! There's a scary thought!)
But now it's done! And I've uploaded my pic to the Spring Top Week Sewalong Flickr Group. I hope the other ladies like it!
I made the blouse from a Jennifer Stern pattern I bought at the Sewing Expo a few weeks ago. It was really nice to put together. Jenn did an amazing job with this pattern -- I LOVE IT! The sizing is fantastic and her direction is wonderful! I want to make another one with long sleeves and another one with the mandarin collar!
I used a linen/cotton blend fabric which is oh-so-light and delicate. Really, quite pretty. The buttons are vintage (of course) from Gramma Rita's sewing basket. I love using the vintage buttons but I just HATE cutting them off the cards! YIKES!! Especially when I don't use all of them.
But they just screamed "USE ME" for this blouse -- they are perfect!
And they're "le chic" -- just like me!
