Pattern Review Sewing Bee – Round 1 Entry

So I decided to enter the PR sewing bee this year – YIKES! I think (hope) it might be fun and we’ll see how far I get. 

The first round required us to make a blouse using woven material, set-in sleeves, some type of closure, etc. So I made Vogue 8772. It’s a blouse with a tie neck/collar.

I made View B. I figured this would be perfect for Fall (and it’s very on-trend right now). I used a silky polyester fabric that is very soft and smooth.

This type of paisley print is one of my favorites. I used brown buttons with red buttonholes because I really like the contrast.

I also like the shirt-tail hem of the blouse. This is something I can see making again. Anyway, I’ll see how far I get in the competition. In any case, I have a great blouse that I never would have made this fast if not for the sewing bee!
