I'm making my first blouse - simplicity 2758. I'm taking a bit of a gamble, as it is for my dress making course (which means it will be assessed) but I am not making a muslim. I did for the trousers (again for the course) but as I only have 6 weeks left before I need to hand everything in, time is of the essence.

I must say, on first try the bodice which I have just put together today is looking fabulous!! I am thrilled. I normally have loose fabric puddling in my lower back, but there is hardly a hint of this.

I'm thinking by the time I add the sleeves it will all sit even better. Lets hope I am not being premature in my celebration, but just wanted to say so far this is looking like a great pattern for beginners.

Photos on my blog are here.

It's looking great, especially for not making a muslin! Looking forward to your finished garment.

Perfect! I love how it holds to your back. Really, really nice.

Smooth and very pretty. (I like deep colors even in warm weather....) I hope you post again when the sleeves are in (though it sounds like you'll be busy for a few weeks).

Your blouse looks lovely. I am so envious of you! Taking a year-long sewing class sounds delightful! Do, please, post the finished photos! Enjoy the course and all the wonderful things you are learning!

as requested here are photos of the blouse with sleeves attached.

Now all that is left is the dreaded (nine!) buttonholes and more pressing. How I would have laughed if someone would have told me how much time I would spend behind an ironing board 3 years ago. I would have scoffed.
