Burda 06-2008-105 Cap Sleeve Blouse

Not a lot of sewing going on here. I finished this blouse a few days ago but with work, moose, and children, I haven't gotten to post it. This is item #7 for the Wardrobe Contest. I have made this top before. I liked it so much I made it again. I wear it a lot as a layering piece. I will often wear it over a turtleneck, long-sleeves t-shirt, or dress. This is a silk-cotton blend from the fabric coop.





Here's some topstitching detail . . .



I used my fantastic Necchi buttonholer attachment.




I hope to finish some kid jammies this weekend but it may not happen. On top of moose butchering/processing, my mom is here. The guest bedroom is the sewing domain. The sewing domain is pretty small to begin with so extra suitcases and things don't make it easy.

The guest room in our house is my sewing space too, and my parents are over for 3 weeks, so I have had to move a lot of my stuff into the garage to make room for them and their luggage...so no sewing :-(...on the up side, the kids get to see their grandparents, who live overseas...

Cool blouse - I like the fabric... Also - loved reading the moose information... I guess I couldn't survive in Alaska - sometimes it seems like too much trouble just to get things from the supermarket!! Can't even imagine having to go through all of that!!!

I like your new blouse. I never thought to use it as a layering piece but great idea. You are certainly motoring along in the Wardrobe Contest.
