I was not convinced the first time, but I knew this fabric was not meant to be a Gertie’s 40s Blouse, so I tried again the Edith Blouse. As I said, I was not in love with my first try, but the blouse was so easy and comfortable to wear that it grew on me. So I changed my mind and made another one (modifying the collar a little bit since my first was too large).
This fabric composition is unknown, probably a cotton blend, since it doesn’t press as nicely as the other one. It was a bargain that I got with the Call the Midwife Skirt fabric. I think it was something like €6 for a meter and a half.
Apart from the collar I didn’t modify anything else, but for my next time I will probably lower the armscyes a little bit to avoid those wrinkles and make the collar even smaller.
All in all, I’m very pleased, and I even wore it on Friday with my Armande cardigan. What’s with me and purple this year? It’s also happening with green. Unbelievable.
I’m not one to plan too much ahead so this was just a happy coincidence. I
And you? Do you plan your outfits or just knit and sew as you please? I’d love to read your thoughts on the matter.
