Office Blouse



Hello lovely readers!!!

First of all, thank you so so much for all the support, encouragement and really great suggestions on my last 'cry for help' post!!!
This is exactly, why I love blogging. You simply give me so so much! AND I was able to rescue that Darling Ranges Dress. Kindly, give me a little more time! I am waiting for beautiful sunny weather and provide you then the result! :D 

Meanwhile, I want to show you a blouse I have finished! I am now working in an office and am in need of loooots of blouses.
Anyway, I don't really like the standard blouse collar on me. It makes me look so boring and conservative, so I opted for this interesting pattern with stand-up collar from Burda magazine 2008/1 (model no. 107).

I like the way the front is kind of 'puzzled' (see below photo for details) and the fact that the 'bib' is against the grainline. It adds that little pizzazz allowed. ;)

The fabric has been waiting in my stash for more than 5 years! Wow, I am so glad to finally have found some pattern for this one!

Dear Tilly, you see you aren't the only one suffering from stitcher's indecision! :D
I truly hope to find some help in your reader's comments!!!

Have a lovely sunday dear readers! And thanks again for all your warm support!!! ♥♥♥

...hmm, help?...

You might think that everything I sew turns out well?!...in that case you are wrong...so today a little proof for that.

I finally found some time to put my hands on the beautiful Darling Ranges dress pattern by Megan Nielsen. As usual, I didn't make a muslin...though this time I regret it a little because I used this wonderful green NaniIro fabric and it just didn't turn out as I had imagined.


Sorry, I don't even feel like making photos of me wearing it! Anyway, I think it is pretty obvious that the neckline is far too wide! 

So please please please lovely readers, if you have any good advices or ideas how to rescue this dress, leave me a comment! I already thought about drafting another neckline and sew it into the previous one. What do you think? And should I use the same fabric as before or a contrast one?!....help is very much appreciated!!! Thanx and have a lovely week!!!
