Sorry for the silence, I haven’t blogged for ages due to computer failure! It has been very frustrating to say the least but FINALLY we are back up and running, hooray!!
This is the Blouse Cézembre by Anne K Courture which has been in my list of makes for quite a while but I only made it a month ago. It has ended up being my Christmas top for a couple of “dos” and I really like it. Initially I thought it might be too big but I think I like the slightly oversized look and it is great for eating too much Christmas fare!
These are the flowers the lovely Mr bought me for our anniversary on December 18th.
Back to the sewing! I made a size 44 as I wanted it to be very loose fitting but I think next time I will go down to a size 42. I took the size according to my bust measurement but it is very generously sized. It’s quite a quick, easy sew, the trickiest bit being the curved hemline which has a facing. You can see the high/low look:
I got the fabric online and it is really one of my best buys from ebay. Karen wrote a post, Putting the fun back into black from Did You Make That made a shift dress in the same fabric.
My youngest took the photos on my phone and he’s not bad but can get a bit fed up after a few minutes!
All in all, I’m quite pleased with it! Let me know what you think in the comments box.
And for those of you too young to remember what Babycham is,
Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and I wish you all a Happy New Year! x
