I can’t tell you how good it feels to finally be back at my machine! My machine was actually waiting for me as soon as we got back. I had sold my machine in Ecuador for the same amount it cost brand new and bought myself a new one so that I didn’t have to travel back with it.
However, after we moved back, we were very busy trying to get settled in and I didn’t have any time for sewing. And on top of that, I didn’t have a space to sew. So one of the first things me and my hubby did was make a desk. Well, my hubby did most of the work but I helped with the sanding and staining.
Once the desk was done, I got to sewing and the first garment I made was a Mimi blouse from Love At First Stitch. I love how it turned out!
This blouse sewed up like a dream. It was the first project that I didn’t have to use my seam ripper as much for, which felt really good, as normally I am always making mistakes! I didn’t need to make any alterations or adjustments to it, which was also a huge plus, because I am terrible still at knowing how to adjust patterns.
I was searching for the perfect buttons for this shirt and couldn’t find anything in my town. Then, my mother showed me her stash of buttons and I found these beautiful ivory ones and I knew they would look perfect with this blouse. I am so glad she let me have them!
- Pattern: Mimi Blouse from Love At First Stitch
- Materials: Rayon fabric from Joann’s , old ivory buttons from my mom.
- Size: 2
- Adjustments: None
I love this blouse. I think it is a great addition to my summer wardrobe and I particularly love how it looks with my chambray clemence skirt. Now, on to my next project!
