Before I could set up my sweatshop to crank out running gear, I had to finish this blouse (changing the threads on my serger is not too horrible, but I’m also too lazy to do it very often). The fabric is double gauze and is from my stash. The pattern is from a Japanese craft book, Blouse Pants Skirt (catchy name, huh?).
The double gauze is very soft and comfy. Even though I made another blouse from this same pattern, I still harbor some doubts about it. I just don’t know about this smock look on me. Peter said, “Oh, I like that you change your style. It’s kind of, I don’t know, matronly.” This was followed by a long pause, and then he said, “Maybe I shouldn’t say that.” But, he meant it as a compliment. This is the same guy who wants me to let my hair go completely grey. I may be old, but I’m not old enough yet to be some silver hair!
