If Only Every Weekend Were 3 Days
I cast on a new pair of car socks.
I finished baking my Fall Knitcircus cookies.
And I finished sewing a blouse.
Pattern: JJ Blouse from Burdastyle.
Fabric: A purple cotton/poly poplin
Notes: As you can see, I modified the crap outta this pattern. I didn't do the ruffles and I didn't do the sleeves as the pattern called for.
But dude, I modified the pattern! You know how it is when you're a knitter and you modify a pattern for the first time because you're confident you can do it and it will work, and it works and you feel like the schiznit? Same thing here except sewing.
My modifications worked!
Oh and I didn't do buttons. I did snaps! Very cool! I bought a cheap snapsetter from Joann's online (not to be confused with those crappy ass snap pliers that apparently suck) and used some purple pearl snaps I bought off of Etsy.
The only thing I wish I had modified was the collar.
Trying not to laugh!
It's a little too stand-up for me.
But that's OK.
I liked this pattern a lot and could see myself making it again. Except with a modified collar.
And a better finished-product-photo shoot with less little man to worry about getting in the shot.
