I started a sewing blog! After meeting so many wonderful sewing bloggers at Gertie’s sewing retreat, I decided it was time. So here goes.
The first post is dedicated to the sweet Bow-Tied Blouse from Gertie’s book. This is my muslin, which despite not fitting perfectly, I was still able to tweak enough to wear.
I love it! This is the first time I’ve sewn French darts (darts that start from the waist). I really like them.
But the best feature of this blouse is the buttons up the back.
I didn’t have enough of this fabric left to cut it out properly so the back is cut on the cross-grain.
Despite being happy enough with the fit to wear this blouse, I’m going to make it slightly bigger next time. I’m already working on the next one. Stay tuned!
