My Very First Clothing Project

Here’s one of my sewing WIPs – my very first garment project, to be exact. It’s the Sencha blouse by Colette Patterns.

The blue cotton/poly blend was on sale at Karstadt (for just 1,50 € per metre!!!!), so it doesn’t really matter whether I mess up with my first blouse or not. (Though it would be nice if I wouldn’t mess up, of course!) The fabric is very smooth and has a beautiful drape. Unfortunately, the colour makes the result look like an ER shirt. *sigh*

I’ll try to save it by sewing a round of decorative stitches around the neck and the sleeve hems.

Apart from the small matter of the colour, I’m rather satisfied with how this blouse is coming along – by now all the darts as well as the shoulder and side seams are sewn, thus I could already try it on, and it seems to fit. Hooray!

    OoOO!! Good luck!

    I can’t wait to see the finished product. I’m sure it will be fine when it’s finished and not at all like an ER shirt (it’s hilarious how these things occur to you half way through sewing something!)
