I decided to make a few blouses before tackling additional dress patterns.

First up is the new Collette Pattern-Sencha blouse. I really like the look of this blouse and I have seen quite a few reviewed on PR. I pin fitted the pattern this evening and I don't have to make a FBA!!!! I cut a 12 in the shoulders/upper chest area, transitioning to 14 for the bust to hemline. I decided to add about 1/2 inch to waist to hip area. I am going to make version 2 which has the tucks at the neckline. I am going to use a fabric left over from a previous project, a Simplicity Project Runway dress. I want to save my recent Fabric Mart purchased fabric for the next blouse.

I am also going to cut out this McCall's pattern. I plan to make the coral version in an aqua fabric I acquire over 4 years ago from Vogue Fabrics.


  1. Ooh, I can't wait to see your Sencha! That is such a pretty pattern.
