Remember this? I shared it last week, with the promise of some modeled shots.
I was tempted to do more jumping shots, but not this time (but it will happen again, because it was fun).
Instead, you get a goofy smile.
My sister always gets the best of me.
Again, this is New Look pattern 6010, in Leah Duncan's Maya fabric.
I highly recommend this pattern, and intend to make a couple of others (although short sleeves might be best for Houston climate).
I haven't shared this here yet, but I purchased a new sewing machine at Quiltcon. It's the Janome 8900QCP, and they were selling classroom units for a steal. So, I did (thanks to my sweet husband).
The new machine is 99% of the reason I can now successfully sew buttonholes.
I don't know what my problem was on the old machine, but a buttonhole was never successfully produced.
Now, I don't have to avoid them!
I'm pleased with this blouse, and even wore it this weekend to my grandmother's 88th birthday celebration.
When asked how old she felt, she replied, "I feel like a question mark."
She's still got spunk.
