When I brought the two sewing magazines from Amsterdam, I already said which patterns I'd like to sew first. One of them was the Billie blouse in the La Maison Victor magazine. I rarely sew chiffon because it is a horrible, horrible fabric, but when I saw this Chiffon with Panters on it (Yay, crazy cat lady!) for cheap (Yay for not caring if it doesn't work out!) in Bremen when visiting a friend together with Sintra, I instantly knew what to use it for!
Fast forward a few weeks (Christmas... ;) ) and imagine me in my room, putting the fabric on the floor for cutting and fetching the sewing magazine from my stash. I stepped back, slipped on the magazine and - twisted my ankle! Bummer, I tell you. It took me weeks to be able to walk properly again and sew, the pattern somehow developed into a boss enemy. I was somehow afraid of starting it again, however stupid this may sound. But now I conquered it:
I am not sure if I will wear this in public with the cats on it. But the pattern fits - no wonder because it is really loose. The fabric was horrible as ever, but the pattern went together smoothly and looks like the pictures. I added some mother of pearl buttons that matched the colours:
Would you wear this blouse for work? With a top underneath?
