My first sewing project!!

I am so happy with this!! It is my first sewing project and I love it!
The instructions for the basic blouse can be found here . Very well explained and for beginners like me!!

I added some details in the front (a little hand stitch accent and a bit of hand smocking)

I hope my little two year  old enjoys it! When I showed it to her today, she said: "Oh, a shirt for me. It's perfect!" That is the most wonderful compliment I ever got :)


  1. You did a great job! I love the decorative zigzag stitching you used, especially on the hem. Too cute! Did you do it on a sewing machine or a serger? I think the hand smocking really adds to the garment. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the layered accent with the bow. There is just something so appealing about slightly frayed fabric. Gives us a sense of the "birth" of the material, ya know what I mean?
    And I think your little girl's comment is precious!!!! :)

  2. Thank you so much for your nice comment, Melissa!!! I just used a very basic sewing machine I bought a few years ago... I think I am hooked on sewing now :) Especially since you can actually complete a garment in a few hours!!! :) Knitting takes so much longer :)
