PR was started because you were discouraged by blouse patterns (Simplicity, I think), so this project is especially appropriate. Hope it turns out to be perfect - and Happy Birthday!

Hi Karla, Yes I remember that! I made good progress last night. The only thing left is, sleeves, hems and buttonholes. Yay! Can I complete it today? We'll find out. Thanks for the b'day wishes!

Love your comment about sewing slowly being weirdly satisfying! As Cynthia Guffey says "it's your hobby, what's your hurry?"

You can tell that you're taking your time--collar and band look perfect!

I love the color. Have you decided on buttons? Some silver or pewter would look really nice! It's coming along nicely.

Thanks for the b'day wishes everyone! I had a great day yesterday. OK I love this WIP feature. Rhonda I would have never thought of silver or pewter buttons but I think that's exactly what I am going to get. Thanks!!!!

A lovely spring colour and the silver trim turns it from office to box office. Way to go!

I recently stood in line behind a woman who was wearing a shirt with this type of cuff. I think it is so attractive and a nice change!

Wow, this is lovely!! The silver trim on the sleeves is a wonderful touch.

Re Becca said...
beautiful! I am sure that you will be able to wear this for a long time and it will be very worth the time you spent on the collar band and the hand sewing.

Oh, Deepika, it's *gorgeous* on you! You did a beautiful job on this-and I love the buttons-in fact I have been hoarding those exact buttons in my stash waiting for just the right project, LOL! Now I wish I had this pattern too (who knows, maybe I can find it!). Thanks for the great review! Enjoy your new blouse :o)

Deepika, your blouse is pristine. The rolled hems, the perfect collar and sleeve cap, the gentle turquoise w/silver accents - all lend an ethereal quality to this beautifully fitted work of Art. Just beautiful. -Lily

Oh but Deepeka, good-quality linen improves with washing... Why don't you wash the scraps in the machine a few times, just to see how it behaves? Then you can wash with confidence.. And yes, it's gorgeous :-).

Love this colour and fabric. The flounce with the silver trim make it look really special. I can understand the dry clean only!

You achieved a beautiful fit on the blouse, and as many others have already noted - the silver accents are dynamic!

I love the silver buttons and trim. They really add something special to an already special blouse. Lovely.

Danvillegirl said...
Great looking blouse. I think you have made a hohum looking pattern look fantastic. Love the silver buttons and trim, good suggestions from others.

Nancywin said...
Your blouse looks great. The first thing I noticed was (what I thought was) the silver "piping" After reading your review, I realized it is trim and you even hand stitched it! You have every right to be proud of this project. I look forward to seeing it at PR weekend!

Really cute, Deepika. I'll look forward to seeing it in person.

You all are so nice. Thanks for such kind comments. This has been one of the most satisfying projects I've worked on in a while.

This is so pretty Deepika. Too bad it is an out of print pattern. I would buy it in a heart beat.
2/27/08 7:15 PM
Deepika said...
Sandra Burda 7936 is a similar pattern but it has cap sleeves. Drafting a flounce is super easy. I wrote a tip on creating a flounce.

Thank you for posting this. I was able to find the pattern online (thanks to Google). You did a great job. The color is flattering and so is the cut. Love the princess seams and the sleeves. It's now 2014, do you still have that shirt? :)
