Red ufo done

Since my last post I’ve been in two minds about my wardrobe. I’ve shrunk but I think I’ve stabilised. And yep, I finished the first silk blouse.

The top is Vogue 8118 and it really doesn’t crease. It’s been sitting on my sewing desk waiting for its accompanying skirt for three weeks. The next version of this blouse will have bias for the neckline facing and I’ll sew the neckline tie lower down the neckline.

The seam finishes are zigzaged so they don’t form a rigid like a french seam would have resulted.

The skirt is one that I made last year but I’ve since resized it by taking out the back zipper and bringing the side seams in by 1″ on both sides.
