The evolution of a new blouse...

So my creative mind has been cranking for a while and now I have made the trip to Joanns, bought the fabric and the pattern, and armed myself to delve yet again into a sewing project! This time, it's a blouse.

Now I wanted something that could be almost year round. This top that I'm going to make now could be probably worn spring, summer, and fall. Probably not the dead of winter, but you never know, with a sweater perhaps.

Anyways, here's the pattern I chose.


No, I'm not making that one with those huge medieval sleeves. I'm going to make basically the view shown on the model, except with 3/4 sleeves. I think. We'll see how it looks.

I found a beautiful blue/grey calico and I got a pretty golden brown for the contrasting band.

I will keep you posted with pictures of the progress of my new top!

Yours truly,

That's adorable! I can't wait to see how it turns out. It's so perfect for making Regency-style part of a modern-day wardrobe. God bless you!

Exactly what I was thinking... I love Regency styles and when I found this pattern I squealed! It's got the perfect touch of Regency to it. :)
God bless,

I own this pattern too. I think I attempted to make a shirt out of it a few times, but never finished it. Hopefully, one of these days I'll actually finish it because it's a pretty pattern. I wish you luck on your sewing project!

A quick question: when you left your comment over at my blog about Miss Bingley's P&P 2005 dress, did you mean that for a suggestion for a Reader Question post? I answered your question in a comment, but if you meant it as a suggestion for a Reader Question post, I'll start up a post and go into more detail on the subject. Please let me know what you think. It's a very good question. :-)
