First, thank you to everyone for the well wishes for DH and me. Wrist is improving but had a few twinges this AM. I may need to cut back on the pace.
I did some sewing yesterday morning and evening on the Sencha Blouse by Colette Patterns. The following photos give you some idea of how blouse is progressing. My fabric is from Fabric Mart. The fabric is more vibrant and appealing than I could capture in these photos. I went with a smaller size in the upper chest, neckline. I may have to trim out the neckline some. It looks tight on Alma Marie. I am going to baste the facings to neckline and will decide then. The first Sencha blouse I made was a little on the big side in that area.
I also hemmed the Simplicity skirt. I ended up fiddling with tension on the sewing machine and got it to my satisfaction and hemmed the skirt using blind hem stitch.
