I finished my two classes at Seneca this week. I had many assignments and three garment projects to complete. I thoroughly enjoyed the classes (Garment Construction I and Patternmaking I), but I am excited to have my Tuesday and Wednesday evenings (and my week-ends, which I spent doing homework!) to myself and my projects again.
I’m a bit spoiled for choice of what to attack next. I worked on the toile of Butterick 6026 today, and I am ready to cut into my linen.
Hmmm… Maybe green on green was not the best way to photograph this. I plan to make the sleeved view (View B) of this blouse. I am not sure that green is one of my colours, but this sage does not frighten me the way that some of the brighter greens do. If I am honest, however, I tend not to choose green, red or yellow for garments. These colours make me anxious for some reason.
The pin tucks are what makes this blouse so interesting and appealing to me. They are a pain to sew, but the effect is worth the effort. There are also three pin tucks radiating from the sleeve hem (difficult to see in the technical drawing). I am about to try my hand at shirt-making! There are buttons, buttonholes and a collar to contend with on this one. Wish me luck!
