Pendrell Blouse - Completed!

I have completed my first handmade garment of the year! The Pendrell Blouse is finished and to celebrate I took it out for a stroll :)





Being a tad OCD I can see quite a few imperfections in my finished blouse, but I'm trying very hard to ignore them and focus on the positives! I love this pattern for one, it came together beautifully and I will definitely be trying it again, maybe then I'll get it just perfect! :) I also love the colour and do feel very girly pretty in it. It's nice that something so simple can make you feel so elegant.



I'm happy with the finished product, and I feel that I learnt a lot during it's construction. Tasia put a great amount of detail into every step so I felt like I was going back to basics and really making sure that everything was done properly. It was a great sew-along, I enjoyed it throughly, and I'm looking forward to taking the blouse out on the town soon!

I love your pretty-in-pink version! It's lovely, and you have great photos to show it off too. Thanks for the awesome feedback on the sew-along, I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

I absolutely love your blouse! I would have never pictured it in a satin, but it's incredibly glamorous, very sophisticated! Nice work!

Gorgeous! And how cool find someone with the same challenge! I'm also making my own clothes for a year. I'm almost halfway, but I already know it's gonna last!
