The latest Sew Colette garment is the Taffy Blouse, and here’s mine! I had every intention of using actual blouse fabric, but then decided to shop my own stash instead. I originally bought this fabric to make circle scarves, but didn’t realize until after I got home that it’s licensed for personal use only. Oops! So here I am wearing more quilting cotton as per usual. One of these days I’ll branch out, I promise! (maybe.) Cotton IS the fabric of my life.
I made a ton of polka dot bias tape to go around the collar and sleeves, but when I got it on the collar it looked terrible. The dots were spread too far apart so you couldn’t even see them on some parts. It looked crooked and weird. So I decided to turn the bias tape on the collar under one more time so it’s more of a bias facing instead of binding. As for the sleeves, I used a fancy stitch on my fancy pants sewing machine and then cut out around all the little scallops. Which took me no less than forever to accomplish. But I think it was worth it, no?
The rest of these pictures are totally just for my own amusement Thank you Darling for amusing me as per usual. You’re getting much better at taking photos <3
Lucille loves the giant Flamenco dancer sleeves! She’s so freaking cute.
No I did not make my skirt, though one of my goals is to make a high waisted pencil skirt very similar to it. Add that to my summer sewing list! I did make my little matching hair bow though. If you couldn’t tell
I hope you’re having an amazing weekend! I should have my laptop’s life cord back Tuesday so I won’t have to randomly commandeer other computers, and I can get back to more frequent blog posts.
