It’s been a week with lots going on….
We have had a busy last few days with my sister visiting. This is her annual trip to Delhi, and what it usually means is that we do a lot of going out, eating good things and generally hanging out. M also considers her his personal shopper so we spent a fair bit of time on shopping for him 🙂
I did manage to get a bit of sewing done in the midst of all this, but before I show it to you, I want to say a big THANK YOU for all your kind and loving wishes. We made a small tour of the hospital that I will be having the baby in this last week (since N was born in a different city and we have moved three cities since…) and that has made the having-the-baby part really sink in.
The pattern comes from the Cali Faye collection, which has been popping up all over the place. I made the blouse in size 4T with extended length. The fabric is mulmul (muslin) with the cutest design, and the button is a little vintage thing that I got from my neighbour….
It is super comfortable, and between the style and the fish N really likes it. I initially thought of it to be too broad, but it’s growing on me, and I think there are going to be more of these in the making soon. (Did you see the one in the super stylish Stylo magazine? That’s what I want to make….)
As for the instructions, they are not a whole lot complicated. But I didn’t find them to be be very good either, and after a point I gave up. I also realised that this is the first pattern written in English that I am using after my favourite Oliver+S patterns and the problem might be more mine in being used to a certain style of writing than that of these instructions actually.
Given the largeness of the Viola blouse, I graded down in terms of size for this one and so it’s actually 100cms (unlike my usual 110 cms size) with a 120cms length. The pattern is from here and the fabric is another mulmul that I have had for ages. The instructions, in case you are interested, are at a minimal, but with no closures and such it was not a huge challenge.
So that’s all for me for this week. I thoroughly enjoyed sewing them. I hope you are having some fun with your sewing too 🙂
