Burda Blouse 117 From 8-2009

Here is the result of my day off- I finished a wearable muslin of Burda 117 in metallic poly chiffon.  We will call it a wearable muslin because fabric came from the 75% off table at Hancock Fabrics about two years ago, and I only bought it for the colors.  Without the bits of ochre and rust in there, this might well have been the ugliest fabric I ever laid eyes upon!  The blouse was a dream to stitch up, even though my lack of a serger necessitated flat-felling to ensure that the seams don't unravel.  I am already planning a second blouse in silk chiffon.  Maybe even in a springy hue.  A couple fabrics I have my eye on for the project:  this lovely iridescent chiffon in seafoam, currently my favorite color, and also this bright yellow print- what a jaunty summer topper that would make!

And now, dear friends, I'm off to sleep.  Must get lots of rest, as there is another full day of projecting ahead of me!
