Twilight Stroll

I finished my blouse for Red Velvet this morning!

It is a sheer blue polyester blouse with lace detail and a little pink button back. I love this and kind of wish I could keep it for myself. I suppose that is a good sign because other ladies will love it, too!

The polyester was a bit difficult to work with at times, and I wish that I had a serger to make the seams a little more clean. I did finish the seams, but serging would have been a bit easier. I really liked how the cap sleeves and lace neckline turned out! I also like the versatility of this blouse--it could be casual with a pair of jeans or dressy tucked in with a high waisted pencil skirt.

Once all of the items are done, I would like to do a "look book" to show ways to wear the items, so be on the look out for that once I'm done!

On to the the next thing...

Sew happy,


  1. yay Christina this looks great. I am so excited to see more things!

  2. Just found you! YAY! This is beautiful!

  3. I'm so glad you're blogging about the sewing and style and craftiness (but not craftiness like... I think you're very sincere, so not that kind). I'm looking forward to being a spectator of this aspect of your life! It feels so good to read your thoughts on things that so obviously make you feel so good!

  4. Hey, my mom has a fancy smancy serger if you ever come across something that you really need to serge. I'm sure she would let you come over and use it anytime!
