New Blouse

I finally got to wear my new blouse. Vogue7876, there were many trials and tribulations getting this to work. In the end, it was comfortable, the v neck didn’t gape and I felt good.
I am not sure that I would use this pattern again, as I don’t think I have the waistline for it. I didn’t like the tie to the ring on the other side. I learn’t alot about fitting, which is a good thing and I feel more confident about getting other blouses to fit better now.
The blouse is also 100% polyester which dosen’t breathe.
I have a couple of muslins cut out and ready to sew. I’d like to see how they work as they are both knits with lycra.

We were off to VIctoria for a few days and had a stop at Beehive. Thanks to Adriana http://friendsknittogether.blogspot.com/ for the 20% off coupon.  I  planned on several things and none of that panned out, but I got some other goodies.  Baby Cashmerino,  Debbie Bliss baby book 2 and I’ll make a jacket for a baby expected next month.

I did a fair bit of knitting lately and my shawl is at about 70% done.
