The Consolation Prize Blouse
I picked up Colette Pattern's Sencha when Macaron was unavailable at my local store. It wasn't what I came in for, but I did not want to leave empty handed!
The toughest thing about this blouse was choosing buttons - I originally thought I would use something more flashy, but was paralysed by indecision, so went with self covered buttons in the end. I'm quite happy with them. Looking at how loose the back is in the photos, I will consider making the next one a bit smaller.
Next one, you say? Well, I thought that since there are 3 views to the pattern, and I have a shortage of blouses, I might make up another one or even two, and use the Sencha as my One Week, One Pattern candidate. I was really excited when I heard about this challenge, but the last week in March is going to be very busy at work, and I just don't think I'll be able to crank out another 2 blouses by then. So I'll be postponing my "One Week" until the end of April.
Hope I can break out of the button rut for the next round!
It looks great on you! I love the colour.ReplyDelete
Thanks! I seem to be on a green kick...Delete
The Sencha really suits you. And you chose a wonderful color. I've had issues fitting it and now I'm inspired to give it another go.ReplyDelete
