A Clothing Finish!

I'm pretty happy with the finished product!

Most fits. A little roomy through the hips but I am not planning to alter it. It is extremely comfortable and was super easy. No buttons or zippers. It slips on and off very easily.

Here's another look at the pattern. I made the pink version with long sleeves. I used a silky, rayon print. 

I pulled out a specialty foot I have ignored for 20 years, a rolled hem foot. It took me a couple of tries to perfect my technique of running the edge of the fabric through the foot but it was worth the extra practice to get it so perfectly stitched in the end.

Two more blouse patterns to I on a roll? I hope so!

when I get my new sewing machine I just might try to make a few tops - well need to practice I haven't made many articles of clothing in years, I'm not sure what feet come with the sewing machine I'm sure I won't get it until closer to the end of the month.

Looks good! I have one of those feet with my old Singer sewing machine but have never used it. Definitely worth checking out.

Lovely! I wish I were brave enough to try shape is between several sizes so it would require come adjustments to each pattern...sigh. You are such an inspiration, Debbie!
