2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

May 23, 2009

BLUSA...

Well, here's the surprise I mentioned in my last post. It's my very first attempt with a Patrones project. It was easy to put together, especially with the translation that Paco included with the magazine.


Thank each one for your recent comments. I've been busy trying to get through this English class - only three more weeks to go and so far so good. Have a safe and restful Memorial Holiday........

  1. Very pretty, kudos! Is Patrones harder to work with than Burda?

    Hugs,
    Lory

  5. *SO* gorgeous! Wow. :-)
    I have that Patrones, and I really, really like that blouse, but I was kind of waffling about making it because that front yoke looks a little tricky. Was it difficult to get it to line up correctly? What did you use for the piping in the seam?

    (And happy Memorial day!)

  10. Hey buddy: I guess that subscription's coming along great. I finally subscribed to Threads 2 weeks ago and got my first issue already! It's July's. Nice looking blouse. I sent you an email recently and may send another (have some ideas I want to run by you). Take care and we'll be in touch.
