I have finished making my entry for the fitted blouse contest that is being held by PatternReview.com
(For those of you new to sewing, this is the link: www.patternreview.com ).
I decided to make a fitted wrap blouse with short sleeves. It also has a collar, which was one of the contest requirements. I used Vogue pattern V8833.
And by last night I only had the hem and some top/edgestitching to do. Well, last night time ran out after the evening chores, so I finished these jobs after work today.
I've put the dress on my ancient dressmaker's dummy and taken a photo of the front and back of the blouse.
Here's the front view of the blouse:
Here is the back view:
I am relieved that the blouse looks similar to the pictures on the pattern envelope!
(I think it is also obvious why I planned to wear this blouse over white t-shirts or camisoles!).
The contest requires two more steps to be completed by me. These are to write a pattern review for the pattern used, and the second is to model the blouse. That is my least favourite part. Still, needs must, so tomorrow I will finish these requirements.
