sewing relating post ENFIN!!!!

My sewing mojo is back at last!!!.

1/I finished burda so famous turtle neck. The one below is the burda version. I used a black rayon knit for mine.






2/a boho silk blouse that I started after xmas intending to wear it for the new year.
The technical drawing gives a better idea of the product than the pictures as usual for Burda.
Here's what it looks like on your favourite model.



 
I feared it might looked like a maternity blouse but hopefuly it doesn't. Your honest opinion would be must appreciated on this point.
I chose a very airy silk chiffon that I purchased at my local Toto Soldes fabric shop. To sew this very thin fabric I used my teflon foot and it helped a lot.
The pintucks on the front and back neck and in the sleeve cap were rather time consuming and asked for precise marking but they are nice.
The neck edge and bottom hem are intentionaly left unfinished but for a secure stiching 1 cm from the edges. Apparently it doesnt fray with that type of fabric.
What I realy like about this blouse are the very gathered sleeves at the cuff. I find them very feminine.
FYI because of the chilly weather, I am wearing this over the Burda turtle neck.


As a conclusion, my sister-in-law gifted me with a huge bag of fabrics when we visited her last sunday.
These are remnants but more of them are more than a yard long. They are mainly microfibre or poly crepe and I might sew some nice blouses, dresses, skrits or night gowns soon.


More on this later, happy sewing week to all of you.
