Finally Finished: Simplicity 2936

This afternoon I finally finished sewing the buttons on the "Strawberry Fields" blouse.  I'm short on time today so I quickly pinned it to Esme.  You'll have to forgive the fact that I am not as wasp-waisted as she is and the silhouette isn't quite accurate:

I wish my waist were this small....

I really love this pattern now that it has been fitted relatively well to accommodate my quirky figure. Simplicity 2936 is rapidly becoming my first TNT pattern (tried-and-true) as Carolyn calls them.

It's made with vintage "faux-let" -- my name for fake eyelet. (Remember that I mentioned how the eyes are stamped on the fabric, so it's not real eyelet). It should be a light and cool blouse for the rest of the summer. I will pair it with blue capri jeans and perhaps debut it on July 4th for a touch of patriotic red, white, and blue.

Blogging might continue to be spotty over the next week as I have a seriously ill family member in the hospital again, but I will do my best as I have some specific plans for the upcoming week (stay tuned!). The only bright side is that my dad is in town and I get to spend Father's Day with him tomorrow.

I hope that everyone is having a bit of a crafty weekend and if you are celebrating, a wonderful Father's Day with your loved ones.
