Something for the day job

I decided to make something  I could wear for work.  The pattern Lisette 2059 came with a magazine, I found the material in a local shop for £3.  The garment in the pattern had long sleeves but I chose to put shorter sleeves on this one as the warmer weather is upon us. The front is plain with a coupBlouse Frontle of darts, the back is in four pieces with gathers running horizontally across the centre.Back View  The cut is bigger than I would normally wear and I took it in 1″ smaller than the pattern size too.

  1. I like the look of the fabric – and those gathers across the back!

  2. Thank you! The fabric is quite thin, so I had to be careful not to snag it while working on it. It was a bargin at my local shop, I love it when we can wear something and it costs far less than you would expect.

  3. That’s lovely and a good summer basic, glad the pattern worked out for you. I really need to sort myself out and get sewing!

  4. Thanks 🙂 It was really easy to make, although I do struggle with sleeves. I used bias tape again on the neck edge. I thought the pattern size was really big, be conscious of that if you make it yourself.
