Hope you are having a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!
I was invited to be a judge for a High School Sewing Contest back in March 2014. The successful event was organized and sponsored by Rosalind with Sew Much Fabric. Since I was grading students on their sewing projects, it was only fitting for me to wear one of my own creations:) So out to the fabric shop I went….while shopping for fabric, I came across this textured floral fabric and was instantly inspired. I decided on a blouse and used a pattern I created for the “Ruffles & Pyramid Trim” Dress. I also added long sleeves using the sheer floral fabric. Here is a glimpse of the process:

My favorite part of the blouse is the back clasp. I used an old necklace and up-cycled it to become the back clasp.
Here is a closer look of the blouse. The flowers are hand-sewn on along the hem and bodice lines to soften the sewing lines.
Well, I hope you got inspired to sew and create:) Have a wonderful Labor Day!
