Sewing ..Blouse Pattern from Singer Perfect Plus book- Plus--Taking Craftsy Classes

   
 I am  taking 2 fitting classes from Craftsy. Both are by  Kathleen Cheetham.
 Adjust a bust   and  Adjust back/neck.  I will do another blog post
about these classes later. But now...let's get to Sewing for Judy.. I am
excited!!


I have blogged about this book some time ago. I really like the author
Kathleen Cheetham's approach to fitting. This book came with
4 changeable patterns. I am making a button up blouse.

This is the blouse , I will be making. It is called, "shapely blouse"
It is fitted with front and back darts. It is button up, and  has
either rounded/square or no collar versions. I will be doing
the rounded collar one, With long sleeves. This will be a  good
basic blouse , and I can see  lots of rotation with it.
Sorry, I forgot to take photo of the fabric I am using. I have
already cut it out, and am now in the sewing process.

I have lots of  sewing plans for me.. I am just looking forward to
spring sewing.. [I know/I know... I must  force myself to realize
it is NOT  spring.. definitely  WINTER.. eeeeh it is 8 degrees today!!]

This will be for my MAGAM  January Challenge. I had  stated that
I would challenge myself to  a pair of pants.. But...  my plans changed.
I  hope to add them either the end of the month, or February. Our goal
for January MAGAM was something new to you, or an Indie pattern
company. This pattern is an indie pattern company, and new to me..

Happy sewing..

  2. We're a little warmer here today, but not by much!!! Why is it spring/summer sewing seems much more fun than winter sewing?! Looks like a nice blouse and look forward to seeing it finished!

    1. Oh Lisa... I really like spring sewing.. pretty spring colors, Cute dresses/skirts.. I think in winter..you have to have too many layers.
      and the fabric has to be thick? lol Plus it is cold today, so I am really not liking that.ha

    1. THank you Bea Jay, The book is great, Kathleen Cheetham really explains the fitting issues.. The only draw back for me is..she drafts her patterns for the pettie [5 ft 2 in person].. I am 5 ft 7 in..SO, I definitely have to do some lengthening.ha. Sewing on the blouse now..How are you doing?

  6. I don't envy you the cold - do your fitting in a warm room :). The blouses look really pretty, it will be interesting to hear how your Craftsy courses help.

  10. I have the perfect fitted blouse that I like to wear when I have to testify in court for my job. I used to know how to take garments apart and make patterns out of them to make another of the same garment, but it's been many years and I don't want to ruin this blouse.

  11. Hi Danielle,
    I have taken things apart and made a pattern too..But, it's not fun, ha.
    I love these patterns.. Really fit well.. [They are for petite -5 ft 2 people... and I am 5 ft 7in ... So, I have to lengthened them.. but that is no problem..
