This is my final piece of clothing for 2010.
The Pendrell Blouse.
Made from Tana Lawn fabric Claire Aude in red by Liberty of London.
An original design by Sewaholic.
The cute pattern. I chose View A for my first blouse.
Sewing machine I have had for 12 years.
I traced the pattern onto Swedish tracing paper.
Pleated sleeve detail.
Very happy with my new blouse!
This blouse only took a couple of hours to make, and fits perfectly. Tasia designed this blouse for pear shaped women, taking into account the size difference between the bust and hips. This blouse is very easy to make as it has no buttons or zippers. I was a little skeptical about how it would fit without these fastenings but it really does slip on and off easily.
You can purchase the pattern for this blouse here. Tasia is holding a Sew-Along for this blouse on her blog beginning January 10, 2011.
