My Creative Space 2010:5!

Last night I sewed up most of my first Big Girls Blouse Month project - Simplicity 2614 - which I cut out on the weekend

Apologies for the awful on-the-hanger, in-harsh-light shot, but you can see I just need to add sleeves, facing and the tie!

I've had a try on of it at this stage, and I'm pretty happy with the fit, although it might cling a little in in the back. I think I'll wait and see how it looks once the hem is done - maybe it's about the bias cut of the back piece, or perhaps next on my list will have to be swayback adjustments (more accurately in my case, big ass adjustments.)

There are plenty more creative spaces to see over at Kootoyoo!



  1. It looks lovely! Can't wait to see the finished product

  2. I agree it's looking great. Hoping that you end up very happy with the result.

  3. Ooh, aren't you clever?! Looks gorgeous and I love the colour xo

  4. Looks lovely & even your pins look perfectly neat & tidy, gorgeous, love Posie

  5. Your 2614 looks fabulous, even without sleeves. Hope you will show us a photo of it on when you have finished.

    I love the idea of the big ass adjustment. (I have both a horrible swayback and large derriere, so will follow your progress with interest.)

  6. That looks absolutely fab - I love the colour! Nice to see the finished piece (with or without swayback, hehe!) A

  7. the fabric reminds me of the 1940s ... my favourite era. very pretty. and no modelling of your dress? i bet it looks lovely on you


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Have a nice day =)
