Shirt/Blouse is finished...

Well, well. I finished the shirt tonight! So I thought I would blog it because if I wait, I won't get to it for days and days! Review is up on PR as well. I got out the button-sew-on-foot and had more fun making the five buttonholes on this shirt. On the last button something caught and I had more fun getting the needle out of the fabric and the fabric off the machine! With gentle coaxing, it all finally came out well. A new needle and all is well. I am happy with the fit of this garment, and will make one more in the next month or so. Not being a fast sewer it will take me awhile to get that done, but there is no rush, and I will sew the pants from this same pattern sheet next. They are lying here all cut out and waiting! A few people have pointed out that I didn't include the pattern number itself. They are so right! It is Supplement #250, 2003, pattern 2!

Very pretty blouse. The fabric reminds me of a Liberty print. It looks very comfy too, nice job on the fitting.

Lovely blouse! I got the Lutterloh system years ago and never really worked much with it. Then sold it. You are doing a great job with it!

That came out lovely. I found your blog on PR. I grew up in Vermont and now live in San Diego. Started sewing almost 6 months now.
