My first blouse

I'm so excited.

I bought a Cotton Friend magazine about 3 months or so back. It's in Japanese.. but there are lots of pictures in it. I figured, I may be able to piece it together some day.

awesome Jap magazine

Then for my birthday this year, darling husband bought me a sewing machine!.. Not just ANY sewing machine.. a Singer Confidence. I was so so so so happy .. I couldn't sleep that night without sewing something. So I sew a pouch.
Gift from darling hubs
But I digress..

The purpose of this post.. and I'm so excited

I made a blouse. Not just any blouse... a stretchy knit blouse with a cowl neck! .. and it's my first attempt!.. and it fits!

2) Hanging on me ..
3) Hanging on my neck :)








I changed the pattern a bit, the original sleeve had a drawstring at the end. I didn't want that.. so I used a normal sleeve pattern instead.
The bottom of the blouse was originally just a hem. Instead I cut a big rectangle and made a band to finish.

I love the stretchy knit feel.. I love the fact that it fits me :D (Pattern was free-size.. I 'up-sized' it a little.. yes I'm of the Plus Size variety)

So what do you think?
