First of all a big thank-you to the commenters on my latest post, for the compliments on my blouse-under-construction. They are well appreciated.
A second big thank-you to Sigrid who suggested a link to a tutorial for sewing a collar with a stand, the way I've done on this blouse (and some blouses before). This is definitely the technique I was talking about, Sigrid.
And as I promised, for everyone who's interested to read and see more:

After a busy week, today I finally had some time to do more sewing and I finished both sleeves. I love the way they are finished at the cuffs, it's so feminine. The cuff is just wide enough to put my hand through (which is normally a lot smaller than the pattern suggests). Here's a detail:
(I promise you the sleeve was there first ......)
So the things left to do are:
- Inserting the sleeves
- Attaching buttons
Shouldn't take too long right? My next post will show the finished project and, for a change, I'm planning on showing it 'in the flesh' :)
Till next time.
