Ombre strawberry shirt in sheer fabric

sheer fabric blouse or shirt for women made with strawberry fruit print with notched collar. convertible collar. button down shirt
Long sleeved blouse pattern

P.S:This post is going to have a lengthy rant about the fabric I chose then the nice part about the pattern.  skip the rant and jump below to read about the pattern, if you wish.
Making this blouse was a SHEER DIFFICULTY. I mean it.. All along there were skipped stitches, zig-zag stitches magically turned themselves into straight stitches. I have made many from sheer fabrics. Not once did I stumble while sewing them. It was almost a breeze to make the cowl neck top and the collared blouse in sheer. For the Polly top it was a test of patience but not once was there any troubles with skipped stitches. I wonder what was it that was different this time with this sheer(or sheesh??) Georgette.

Fun Floral top + another Japanese book

I love black, who doesn't. It makes such a lovely contrast for many prints and patterns.It is lovely used as such for a dress or top also. Well why am I talking about black when the top I am posting about today is not in black but is floral ?? Any guesses. That is because this post is all about the Basic Black book. Well the book has got a lot more in it than just black. so ready to read more about it.. Let us continue..

Top with interesting neckline pleat

Heya.. First of all.. Dont be surprised to see a post about a summer top in a winter month. This was made long long ago but coming up on blog now. Its time I checked off my backlog.

Making Dress-F...(a dress with interesting sleeves)

Hello readers :) Before I start writing the details of the dress I made from Stylish dress book. I have a few thoughts lingering on my mind which I just want to share. To skip these not-relevant thoughts and read about the dress jump to next paragraph. Let me start off. I have started to realize that maintaining a blog is not easy. My blog is far much simpler to look and no advertisements etc etc. But still each time I make something I have to plan how I will take pictures(good ones so that you can see details clearly). I have to plan the content of how my post is going to help you by reading it. I have to edit the pictures crop them so that it loads quickly for easy viewing. And I have to upload link of my latest post on my other pages. Phew! Well for a hobby this is quite tiring. But still I continue to do it out of joy :) And I am glad you are reading and following it. Thanks a lot :) Now back to the dress. ...(Click below to read more)

There is a leopard printed bag now in my room!! I made it (tap dance;)). I feel any dressmaker will feel the urge to make a bag or two sooner or later. I made a clutch a couple of weeks ago. It was so lovely that I wanted to make a handbag too:) Read all about the pattern I used and my experience making the bag.
