I’ve finally managed to post my last make on the blog. It’s the Chantilly Blouse by The Yellow Peg.
It’s a very simple beginner’s sewing project that I sewed very quickly. I took two months for taking pictures, writing, translating and post it instead. But here it is in the end!
I went back to work in March and it seems that finding time for sewing has became quite difficult.
Anyway here I am… it’s a spring project, made in a beautiful orange floral vintage silk a friend of my mom gave me.
I’ve worn it a lot in the last two months.
Simona (aka The Yellow Peg) asked me to try her new sewing pattern and I decided to sew the simpler version of the blouse. It’s an easy blouse, perfect in every occasion, with a pair of jeans or, if you want to dress up, with a more elegant skirt.
It’s super easy to sew and it’s a sewing pattern perfect for beginners. I suggest you use cotton voile, batiste or popeline and not a silk fabric if you’re a beginner.
I like it’s loose-fitting. I only modified the armscye depth (I lowered it by two cm), because I prefer lowered armscyes for this kind of top.
The instructions are clear with pictures and texts.
I usually make French seams in a silk garment, but I sewed and then finished the raw seam allowances with the serger this time.
And I pin hemmed the sleeves and the blouse hem.
Et voila, here I am with my brand new silk blouse! And I love it!
