The plan was to make a skirt but when I laid my eyes on this pattern while flickering through some older magazines, I just couldn't resist. I had the perfect fabric for this in my stash with a perfect (sort of) African print that's so hot right now. The fabric is superthin which is required for this pattern as there is a lot of draping going on in the front. Let me show you the line-drawing to make this clear:
This was sewn in no time. And it's really a very simple pattern.
If you would consider making this blouse I really recommend to use a thin fabric and choose the width of the collar to your liking. (I made it 34 cm wide). You don't want to end up with too much fabric in the front.
Anyway, I like it very much. It's a very light summery blouse. Just what we need right now!
(And sorry for the wrinkles in the picture. I had worn this top to do some shopping and had to drive a hot car with no airconditioning. Yes, I feel sorry for my self to).
As for the fingers. It's all healing very quickly and there's no pain when used normally and within it's boundaries). If it has been successful? I'll have to wait and see. Fysio has started again. 3 times a week and lots of practising at home. Monday I have an appointment with the surgeon and then I will hear more. I suppose he will be able to tell if it has been succesful or not. But to be honest, I'm pretty nervous about that.
In the meantime, I'll still be able to sew. And that's a blessing!
Talk to you next time.
