Fitted silk blouse for Sewing bee contest

Fitted Blouse - Front

This is my entry into the Pattern Review Sewing Bee contest.  The challenge was to make a fitted blouse with closures.  The pattern is a cross between Lekala 4115 (a shirt dress) and Lekala 4439 (a blouse)


Fitted Blouse - Back

The fabric is a Liberty silk that I bought in Goldhawk road last year.  I only had a meter so it was a bit tight to make a sleeved blouse.

Fitted Blouse - Buttons

I have never sewn with silk before so that was one of my biggest challenges.

Fitted Blouse - Hairline seams

All the inside seams are hairline seams which gives the neatest finish.  The hems are baby hems.

  1. My DH really liked your blouse and was disappointed you didn’t move on, I think your buttons are really cool.
