My friend Koh likes the tank top I sewn for her last week. I am so happy that it fitted perfectly on her.
The hot weather in my country has pushed me to sew another tank top for myself . This time I decided to refashion a long sleeves blouse. I bought the blouse many years ago . I had wore it only for a few times because the neck opening seems too big for me . I love the cotton and linen mixed fabric of that blouse and decided to sew a comfy top from it.
I drafted a paper pattern using my own body measurement two days ago. Last night I cut out the front and back bodice parts as shown in the pictures below.
I cut out the facing from one of the sleeve.Since there is another sleeve left, I cut out two rectangular pockets from it.I sewed scallop decorative stitches on the pockets as shown in the picture below. I went to school this morning because we had meeting and activities for girl guides. I was back home at 1.00 p.m. After taking a short nap, I felt refresh to start sewing the top. I finished the sewing within 45 minutes and was able to take pictures too . I am quite happy that I had refasioned the blouse into a comfy top . I like it very much !
Now, with a cup of coffee and a piece of self-baked moist chocolate cake , I am sitting in front of the computer writing this post. For me, sewing is such an addictive hobby. I just could not stop myself from sewing . HowI wish we could have 36 hours a day instead of 24 !
Tomorrow is another beautiful Sunday! Hopefully I will be able to come out with some stuff too. Just wait and see ! Hope you have an enjoyable Sunday !
