What a wonderful stylish blouse. I love all the design details and you executed each one so well.

Gosh, I don't really know what to say......I guess I've never been very good with compliments. I put the eyelets in with the Dritz eyelet plier, I couldn't imagine trying to hammer them all in. I love the pliers (I bought them especially for this project), you can work very quickly and precise with them. I know I'm going to have a lot more fun with them. With a goth for a daughter eyelets, etc. are in high demand!

With a blouse like that, if your only mistake was having the buttons show you did very well. Great job.

Picture me standing on my computer chair applauding! Tell me please-how did you put in eyelets??

What an unusual and interesting blouse, and a very pretty fabric! I agree with the others that you should upgrade your sewing skills.

Fantastic designer blouse Ågnes. Even more so knowing you did it with no instructions.

Love the shirt - and the review is great, thanks! I have my first issue of Patrones but haven't tried a pattern from it yet - I hope it turns out as well as yours when I do!

Thanks, for adding the fabric swatch, Agnes. That is really cool fabric.

OK, they are still available on this site:http://www.marlofashionmagazines. There was this particular issue and also the next one #229 which was even better, you might want to try there.

Agnes, very well done, this was one of my DD's favorites in this particular mag, I'm still loooking for that perfect fabric for it.

Incredible, designer looking blouse. How can you be a beginner?

This is beautiful. Very couture. I bet you get a ton of compliments - on the style of the shirt itself and on your sewing skills.

I thought it was crinkly rayon too and loved the look. I like the crinkled look better than the ironed look. If I had any intention of going to that much work (or actually if I had the time), I think I would use a fabric to give me that look. Lovely shirt!

What a great looking blouse.

Kiro, I'm afraid I can't help you with a canadian seller of the magazine. But if you do a search on the message board you might come up with something. I know it has been topic of discussion before. I will make a close up of the fabric tomorrow (it's midnight here and this girl needs her beauty sleep). I know it looks a bit crinkly in the picture, but that's because I worked on it some more after ironing. I was to lazy to iron it again today. Thanks for the compliments!

Your blouse is very nice. I would love to see a close-up of your fabric. I thought it was a crinkly rayon in the picture and surprised to find it had wool in it.

WOW - I literally gasped when I saw your blouse. FAN-tastic!

What a kewl blouse!! Wow - thanks for the review.

I think this would look great using it as a jacket over a flimsy little camisole. What a nice piece.

Oh, Agnes....A for finished project, and extra points for bravery. As much as I love Patrones, I tend to skip the designs that really require instructions. I am SO impressed. The shirt is a knockout. Congratulations (she said enviously.)

Outstanding. That is such a different blouse and kudos for working out the instructions all by yourself.
Kiro said... (10/9/05 1:59 PM) Reply
Agnes: I absolutely love the blouse. You did a wonderful job. Do you know if there is any way to obtain this magazine in Canada? Are most of the patterns this unique?
