McCalls 6436 finished
Yippee I have finished my McCalls 6436 blouse. I am wearing it with my blue Linton Tweed skirt I made a week or so ago, but this time accessorising it with black belt and shoes.
You can see from the pictures below that the fabric was made up of 3 x large scarf panels, each being edged in a grey animal print design and then black. I decided to use the black as my accent colour because this will work well with many other items in my wardrobe.
I chose self coloured buttons for this because I didn't really want anything else to draw attention, because the fabric is busy enough.
I took time to match up each of the design pieces to make sure they match on left and right pieces.
This pattern comes up really long, and in truth I should/could have shortened this by about 5-6", and will definitely do this when I cut this pattern out again (which I will do).
Judith from the blog Made by J also made this pattern up, once for her daughter in a beautiful sheer fabric and again for her, proving that this really is a versatile pattern. Check out her blog and see her examples they are beautiful.
I am slowing finishing my capsule wardrobe which I am taking to KL tomorrow. I will do a separate post showing you what I intend to take with me tomorrow.
Best get on to my next job. Catch you later................
