FO: Painted Portrait Blouse

painted portrait blouse

I finally got a chance to upload the photos my sister took of the painted portrait blouse! As you may remember, my pal Amanda and I made these together when she visited last month.

Using my favorite Indie print, purchased from Stash Fabric, I think this is the first sewn garment that I have felt truly confident about.

Amanda and I struggled with some of the process, but we persevered, and I'm so glad we did!

My sister took these photos of me at my grandparents' farm.

This place feels like home.

Jill and I can't help it. We just get.silly together. So, here's some jumping photos for your viewing pleasure. Or laughter. You pick.

  7. Mgosh, how beautiful. How fun! You definitely got some great shots! Congrats on a very nice finish. I'm glad you are happy with it!!! I've noticed when wearing my version that it tends to ride up in the front. I guess I didn't give it enough ease in the bust. I'll have to make some adjustments next time. I hope your fit is perfect the first time around!
