A blouse called Blanche

Ok, I just called it Blanche ’cause it almost rhymes with blouse.  Maybe Claire or Mary would be better names? Anywho, these days it seems the only way I can finish a sewing project is if I isolate myself for an entire weekend.  Gone are the days when I could work on several projects at the same time. Since I moved a year ago, I don’t have as much space for spreading out fabrics and making patterns. But enough complaining! Last Saturday I confined myself to my room (the weather was crappy anyway) and made a blouse. It’s a basic t-shirt model that I made in a flowy rayon fabric.

I’ve previously made another version with a wrapped shoulder. This one is a little wider than usual and has longer sleeves. I also made it with curved  hems . I’m definitely going to make more versions of this blouse. It’s great for work since it’s chic and casual but not too informal as a regular t-shirt. I’ve recently noticed that my work wardrobe is not as professional as I’d like it to be. So that’s one more thing to add to my Project Dream Wardrobe.

I’m one of those people that rarely wears black ( I refer to the 5 black garments at the back of my closet as funeral attire) so I was hesitant to buy this fabric but in the end I bought it because this print is so captivating!
