I'm back... let the sewing and blogging commence!

I have been away for a terrific holiday but wasn't able to blog while away as we rarely had Internet (it is the sort-of the good thing about camping!)  However I did get some fine photos taken of outfits I made for the trip so will be posting them soon.

In the meantime I came home and wasn't sure what direction to take with my sewing, so decided to let the challenge of entering the Great PR Sewing Bee help dictate what to make next.  Ta da...

I have my entry in for round one and really enjoyed the challenge of making this blouse as well as the challenge of deciding how to embellish it to move it away from being a plain Jane.

Photos here, but no details as I have detailed the making of this top in my review - here if you are interested.

Ciao kittens, more posts soon...


  1. Nice blouse Sue. I love the princess seams and the contrasting thread. I love the buttons doubled up and the contrast thread (which I did on a shirt recently too). The thing I like the most is the sleeve... set in but with the gathers at the band. Love it.

  2. Nice to see you back Sue - and I really like that outfit on you! You look very happy and the blouse embellishment works perfectly.

  3. Love the embellishment for your blouse, and the the style looks very smart on you.

  4. This looks great and the fit is fab :)

  5. Great fit & best of luck in the PR Contest !

  6. Beautiful blouse. I love the double buttons, the contrast thread, the sleeve bands - really all of it! And the fit is perfect.

  7. Adorable details, and great fit!
    Nice job, I'm rooting for you in the contest.


Love to hear what you think...
