New Look 6598

I bought this pattern a while back.  It’s a blouse with sleeve and collar variations. Truth be told, I really only looked at the front of the pattern when I bought it. I wanted to have/make more woven tops (as opposed to knit tops). I saw this and I really liked it.

Well, what I didn’t realize at the time is that it does have a nice detail on the back of the blouse – a tie.

It’s a simple detail that just makes it something a little different. This is quite easy to make AND I used another piece from my fabric stash AND some buttons I had as well!

This is the kind of thing that I can see myself making again. It also comes in long sleeves and sleeveless, with a collar or without (like the one I made here).

Now, on to the next project to use up some more stash!

  1. I like this very much and i like the tie at the back (lovely fabric). I must add it to my wish list. I have only just ventured into making dresses, tops are next on my list:))

  2. I'm leaning toward less knits as well. I love that blouse and color looks fabulous on you. Suc a great summer look. Someone else in blog-land made this same blouse (or one similar) in chambray and it was just as nice. I've got to check out this pattern. Thanks for posting.

  3. Hi Denise,

    I found your blog from the sidebar of Home Living. Beautiful clothes! I am inspired to break out my dusty, rusty sewing machine. You described me in your header – love to sew, but have no patience for long projects, LOL.
