FO: Maya Blouse

FO: Maya Blouse

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.


  1. Yay! It's so pretty, and you're too cute! :)

  2. Love this blouse just what I have been looking for, where did you find the pattern?

  3. Great fit! And what a treat to add buttonholes to your list of skills. Opens up many new possibilities.

    Happy Birthday to your grandmother!

  4. How perfect and sweet, and you look beautiful in it! I especially love that last pic with your Gram!! :)

  5. Great blouse. You look so pretty!

  7. Jacey it's beautiful! I'm so glad that you and your new machine are getting along well :) And I love the photo with your grandma! 88 is not too shabby, and I love her answer about how old she feels.

  8. Happy birthday, grandma! The blouse looks fab as well!

  9. congratulations on your new machine! Must be fun!
    The fabric for the blouse is wonderful. And goofy smile or not: one gets a better feel what the blouse looks like when you wear it. :)
